Is Your Corn Knee High?


 "Uncle Sam says: Garden to cut food costs. Ask the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Washington, D.C., for a free bulletin on gardening - It's food for thought ".

 This poster, created by the United States Department of Agriculture in 1917, was part of a World War 1 conservation project encouraging citizens to grow their own food, freeing up the commercial food for use in the war effort.
