The pictures have that beautiful vintage look but more interesting is that this catalog is dated January 2, 1941 putting it at a very important time in history - the midst of WW 2. The era of the original Victory Garden. Within the pages there is a letter from the president of Salzer Seeds, Mr. Kenneth E. Salzer, encouraging Americans to plant gardens to help their country. You should read it. It's really cool. (Click on the images to enlarge for reading / viewing.)
If you read this letter from the president you have to get the sense that life is coming full circle. Moving back to eating local.
Purty, huh? Spring is in the air! OK - so I'm exaggerating. Let's just call it a burst of color on a drabby winter day.
I am joining Tootsie’s Fertilizer Friday so check it out. There’s always lots of pretties!
