I like it, for the message it's trying to send, but do you think it might be viewed as a bit sexist in today's times? This was from WWII, the British "Dig for Victory" campaign, so it was a different time period and a different world they lived in. Of course, men were the ones in the military at that time, so women were left at home to care for the family and other things, so the campaign directed this toward them.
The purpose was to remind people that farmers were growing the other essential crops and that they needed to grow the vegetables for their kids' nutrition. I do like the suggestion to turn your garden over to vegetables, and get the "older" children to help. DO IT NOW. Ha, can't go wrong with that.
As always, a nice glimpse into our not too distant past.
