The spring edition of Edible Memphis just arrived. There is an excellent article on victory gardens, a grassroots gardening movement during WWII.
Ironically, Shawn and I recently ordered two prints from the Victory Gardens of Tomorrow. We love the vintage style and themes.
I contacted the author of the Edible Memphis article, Stephy Momper. She blogs about all things gardening and plants. We chatted about her blog, the artwork and chickens.
She was kind enough to send me this letter that she found in the Shelby County Library archives while during her research.
What a cool piece of history! Thanks Stephy.
