Victory Garden Seeds 1943

"Victory Gardens--for family and country. There's no age limit when Americans get down to the business of preparing for a Victory Garden. These youngsters are carefully selecting seeds for the vegetables they'll be growing this summer: carrots, beets, tomatoes, squash. The estimable spinach will no doubt be left upon the dealer's shelves."

Photographer: Ann Rosener. February 1943. Nitrate negatives. FSA - Library of Congress.

Every Thursday a carefully selected old agricultural photo is featured here on Big Picture Agriculture — lest we forget how things used to be.
