VICTORY GARDENS 1944
By ERNEST G. MOORE, Manager, United States Department of Agriculture
Victory Garden Program
There is a big job for everyone this year. Growing food for freedom la one of
the most important jobs for the people on the home front.
The Department of Agriculture and the War Food Administration have set a
goal this year of 22 million Victory gardens over last year's 20 million. Last
year 8 million tons of food were produced from those 20 million Victory gardens.
This year gardeners are asked to produce 10 million tons of food. This means
an increase of 2 million gardens, or 10 percent, and an increase of 2 million tons
of food, or 25 percent.
Victory gardeners throughout the country can, I think, meet this goal. They
have had at least 1 year's experience in growing food, and by that experience
gardeners can grow lit'tier Victory gardens in the United States thip year.
Because of the large amount of food produced in Victory gardens last year,
food ration points (on some vegetables have been reduced. Beans, for example,
were taken off the ration list altogether. We hope that Victory gardeners can
keep up this record production and possibly keep down ration points on vegetables
One of the needs this year will be more local Victory garden leaders. These
leaders can help the beginner grow better crops and in this way save seed, fertilizer,
and labor that might otherwise be wasted. The leaders can supply this lack of
knowledge, thus helping to make better Victory gardens.
Supplies for Victory gardens, such as seeds, fertilizer, and insecticides are ex-
pected to be more plentiful than a year ago.
Just because we produced so much food In Victory gardens last year does not
mean that our job has ended. Farmers have just about reached their limit In
food production, and the more food we produce the more food we will have.
There are about 11 million men and women in the Armed Services, and several
million of these are overseas. These men and women must be supplied with the
propwr foPl. Also, there will he inillions of people in liberated countries who will
need food that we will he able to supply.
By growing more Victory gardens and better Victoty gardens, we here in the
I'lii lil SI t i 'Iis (- ii ill IIll r wi %t 1rk ntil| can hell) not only ourselves but our men
and women in the Arnmed Services and our Allies.
There are many publications both in the Department and In the State agri-
