Did you know that during WWII, people donated their pots and pans to be used as battleship materials, and their bacon grease as a bomb ingredient? Since we’re currently dealing with high-stress times again in the US, many people are scrambling to find other ways to remain self-sustainable while times are tough. The first action that most people take is planting their own vegetable garden. Planting your own garden doesn’t just help you save money, but it also provides benefits such as increasing your connection with the earth and acting as a stress reliever.
- Now that we’re in the midst of a pandemic, it’s hard to break away from that.
- Starting a garden can be a fun an simple way to get outdoors, and vegetable gardens don’t have to be ugly.
- Vegetables require a lot of care because they can be difficult to grow if you aren’t aware of what they need.
“During WWII, the Big One, people brought their pots and pans to be made into battleships, delivered their bacon grease to become bombs, and planted Victory Gardens so farmers could turn their plowshares into swords and fight overseas.”
