1943


 

Welcome to Episode 10's supplemental blog post! Part 2 about Victory gardens focused on the garden itself, what was planted, what tools they needed, and helps, successes, and problems. To read part 1 go HERE.

At the beginning of the episode I mention the interview with author Julie Zuckerman. You can read that interview HERE!

First, I wanted to showcase some Victory garden artifacts from the amazing American homefront collection of Scott and Carrie Lords. You can follow them on Instagram @homefronthistory and you can visit their website HERE!





Thank you so much, Carrie, for sharing these amazing WWII Victory garden artifacts! I especially love that Victory garden scrap book. 💓

And now, enjoy these articles from various magazines I mentioned in the episode.
