Plant a Covid-19 victory garden

Updated: Oct 19, 2020

Have you heard of victory gardens? Well, if you aren't in your golden years, this

the term may be a little strange for you; So let us give you a bit of history.

Victory Gardens—also known as war gardens or food gardens for defense—were vegetable, herb, and fruit gardens often planted in private residences and public spaces: i.e. parks and outdoor green spaces.

Victory gardens were planted across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and Germany throughout World War I and World War II.

Yesterday, 10.16.2020, our team at Chiccharney Farms along with Mrs.Nancy Kelly planted our first Covid-19 victory garden; as deemed by Mrs. kelly, who remembered and shared with us the last time she had done gardening during World War II.

We were so fascinated by her story this blog post has been dedicated to her.

Based on our research most victory gardens grew beans, beets, carrots, cabbage, lettuce, peas, tomatoes, kohlrabi, kale, turnips, squash, and swiss chards. All of which can be grown this fall by way of our private home gardening program. These gardens were not only planted to boost rations but were encouraged by the governments to boost morale.

With the fall season just beginning, we have an amazing opportunity to grow lots of fresh produce over the next 8 months.

While we are experiencing the first pandemic of our time with #Covid19, It is important that we prepare and grow as much food as possible to supplement our trips to the grocers. This lessens the probability of contracting the virus. Growing food in our private spaces will give hope, exercise, and the ability to feed our families during this time.
