Oooh! One of my favorite topics! I have a small Victory Garden in my back yard in containers - I do peas, tomatoes, radishes, carrots [and herbs of course] but I want to expand this year.
Also, I highly recommend the Victory Seed Company! Their mission is to propagate heirloom varieties (which are hardier and of course historic) and they even have a Victory Garden themed selection in special packaging!
Yay for Victory Gardens!
