Victory Gardens in DeKalb in 1944
From the April 17, 2019, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1944, 75 Years Ago.
"Waiting only for a change in the general weather conditions, home gardeners of DeKalb are preparing for victory gardening this year on even a greater scale than last.
"Gardens last year were well above expectations, and this year the government is asking that home gardens produce 25 percent more food than in the 1943 season."
