Oscar H. Will Victory Garden Collection
<p style=”text-align: left;”> </p>
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 <a href=”http://www.grit.com/farm-and-garden/the-freedom-garden.aspx” title=”history of the American garden” target=”_self”>history of the American garden</a> is fascinating and incredibly important, and we’re proud to encourage folks to keep it alive and growing.</p>
