RE: Victory Gardens

Unless you have a few oldtimers to help you out, your best bet is to check
out local newspaper clippings from the period ( usually available at the
local history area of your city's central public research library.) Other
sources are you area's historical society, horticultural society, Seattle's
city archives, and your own  University's archive. i wouldn't be suprised if
SU had a victory garden on campus during WWII. Alumni news and the college
newspaper kight be another source of info.
This sounds like a great post-gardening season project ( after you've
planted your spring bulbs, mulched the beds for the winter, cleaned up the
tool shed, sharpened and oiled the tools for next season and turned more
manure into the compost heap.)

Good luck and happy gardening,
