Plant A Victory Garden

We are in the process of designing landscape plans for a number of projects.
We like the idea of victory gardens in the front yards.
"During World War I and World War II, the United States government asked its citizens to plant gardens in order to support the war effort. Millions of people planted gardens. In 1943, Americans planted over 20 million Victory Gardens, and the harvest accounted for nearly a third of all the vegetables consumed in the country that year. Emphasis was placed on making gardening a family or community effort -- not a drudgery, but a pastime, and a national duty."

We like the idea of these gardens making a comeback.
