Victory Garden

Squash Plants June 12th

About a month ago, we issued you a challenge to start your very own Victory Garden. We learned that the idea of a Victory Garden is a product of the war effort years ago and the need to help with food production. Some folks got busy and started their garden. Some of you have not started yet and may need a little bit of encouragement.

Within a few days of planting our little Victory Garden, the seeds started sprouting and now it is looking good. Here are a few photos so you can see what it looks like. As a reminder, we planted lettuce, squash, okra, and some brussel sprouts. With our photos below taken just ten days apart, you can see how fast this little garden spot “jumped up”. In just a few more days, we will be able to start using some of the lettuce for fresh salads! Other plants will take a little bit longer to reach maturity and produce delicious vegetables.

We hope you have been a little more inspired and prompted along to plant your little garden. You may be thinking that it is too late to start, but it is not, so let’s get going!
