HE EATS A TON, VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY

Most every Sunday, we try to post an image of old posters that we find during online surfing.  We enjoy the ones that reflect farming, gardening and/or food preservation and rationing.  We enjoy them because we often wonder if anyone today would heed the kind of advice they gave back then...enjoy!

Here is a WWII poster that encouraged, as most did, farmers to grow food to feed the troops.  It was part of the "Food for Freedom" program that actually gave tax benefits to farmers who grew extra food for the war effort.

Hope you are having a great weekend!  
Will catch up later!

    1. Amen to that. I wish someone could create that movement.

  2. It seems (sadly) to take a war to make us pull together.

  3. Another great food poster! Both of my grandfathers were farmers during WW II while their sons were soldiers. And my grandmas always had gardens.

    1. Now that is cool. The gardens fed the family and friends too I bet. Everyone did their part. Seems like so many don't these days.

    1. Well thanks for that. I spend a couple hours every few weeks scouring online archives for them. There are SO many war posters, about "loose lips sink ships' and things like that but I always try to find the ones that bring gardening, recycling, canning, etc, into it.
