FERTILE SOIL, VINTAGE POSTER SUNDAY

Produce More for Victory, vintage poster image, courtesy of US National Archives
True words then, true words now.

This one dates from WWII and the "Victory Garden" campaign.  I believe a of humor was the way to get the point across in this one.  This poor guy's farm is definitely fertile, with all the baby pigs and chicks and puppies and of course actual BABIES, ha.  I am guessing the poster was to remind people to keep their soil fertile so they can produce more food.

Hope you are having a good weekend!

Getting the fertility up in the soil is tricky without all the animals though!

If you don't have animals of your own, it's likely that anyone nearby who has critters (rabbits, guinea pigs, horses, chickens), if they are not using it themselves, would be happy to let you have all the free fertilizer you want! Yours for the asking.
