“Victory Gardens. Where the Nazi’s sowed death, a Londoner and his wife have sown life-giving vegetables in a London Bomb crater. Official British photo.” -Office of War Information (1939-1945)


I love the idea of "defiant gardens," or war gardens..."not just victory gardens, grown in time of scarcity, but those planted on hostile fronts, including Eastern Europe's ghettos and the Japanese-American internment camps of World War II." NPR had a story on them a while back: http://www.npr.org/2006/05/29/5435131/tending-defiant-gardens-during-wartime.
