The Victory Garden is a re-created World War II-era garden and features "heirloom" vegetable and flower species available to gardeners through the 1940s. Throughout the war years, millions of victory gardens in all shapes and sizes -- from window boxes to community plots -- produced abundant food for the folks at home. The plantings in this re-created garden are rotated seasonally.
