 Fruits and Wound Healing vintage poster, image from National Archives at College Park, MD

This poster is definitely interesting, if not a bit blunt in its message.  It was similar to others from the time that talked about how healthy fruits were, but this one tied it in with the war effort.

Here it is the vitamin content that they are emphasizing.  It states that Vitamin C is an aid to healing wounds and building tissues and the Government urged people not to waste fruit because it could help soldiers who were wounded.

Hope you are having a great weekend.  We have done some stuff at the farm and best of all, things are greening up again after the rain.  More later!

Thanks for worrying about me! I'm ok, just a little overwhelmed! I've done a brief blog post finally. I hope you are well. I have a lot to catch up on.
