Victory against high food prices


Well...so much for this year's budget. After going through Aldi's and Nic's I've noticed that the balance of the monthly budget isn't in too good a shape. Later in the evening I was doing my normal wanderings about the Net and stumbled upon this quote: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Who knows why, or how, but this lead me to remember the Liberty Gardens of World War I and the Victory Gardens of World War II

As usual we in the States have very short memories (some of us anyway) and have not remembered or listened to those who went through times of food and fuel rationing. My point is we have tons of resources at our disposal for small plot gardens, container gardens etc. Who knows...maybe we'll have a Victory Garden here at the Library in the near future.
