VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY, VICTORY GARDEN SEED COLLECTION

Will's Victory Garden Seed Collection
This is a neat poster from WWII that combines canning and growing veggies the Victory garden movement.  This was a poster for seeds that were being sold and the company was selling them as a package/group for a garden of specific size (25' x 80') and rows 25' long.

It was nice to see the seed companies tie it in with the Victory garden campaign and showing the canned "results" of the harvest was a nice touch.  It would be so cool to see companies do this again.  Our country really needs a movement or push toward being more self sufficient.  It's an art that's becoming lost and it's so important, perhaps even more so today than in ever.

I say we all "grow, can and save!"

I love that poster! That's exactly how I want my pantry to look after growing all my own veggies and preserving them for winter :)

Beautiful. I guess that means we can expect to see some pictures of your pantry this fall?

Wouldn't it be lovely to have a larder that looked like that!

That's a great poster. I have several vintage catalogs which offer collections like this, but have not run across any posters. It is an inspiration for the pantry...

It's so neat seeing all those vintage seed catalogs and stuff that was sold. I'd LOVE to have a poster like this, ha. Maybe it's inspiring to create our own pantry and take a pic and make it into a poster, ha.
