GRIT Editor Hank Will at the wheel of his 1964 IH pickup.Back in 1944, my grandfather offered a Victory Garden Collection that included wax, string and shell beans, beets, cabbage, carrots, sweet corn, cucumber, lettuce, onions, parsnips, peas, radish, squash, Swiss chard and tomato seeds. Twelve packets, a pound and a half of bean seed, an ounce of beet seed, half pound of sweet corn seed and a pound of pea seed for $1.60 postage paid. The history of the American garden is fascinating and incredibly important, and we're proud to encourage folks to keep it alive and growing.
