I'm surprised at how many food articles one can find on political websites. Take the Huffington Post, for example. This site founded by former "also-ran during the 2003 California recall" Arianna Huffington occasionally posts things about food, usually tied somehow to politics. Buried somewhere under a tidbit about the First Lady's plan to promote healthy eating is a post about fighting the recession the Greatest Generation way: by starting your own Victory Garden! The crop to start out with: strawberries. This is a phenomenon that has been going on for a while now. Look what I found just by Googling "modern victory garden" just now! My ex-landlords, who up and moved from Redlands, CA, to somewhere off the Great Cherokee Lake in Oklahoma have a gorgeous garden growing on their lovely lakefront property. And since I have more land than the typical apartment renter in Baltimore City, I think I may have to try this. The Dallas News did a story explaining how.
