Wartime Garden: Rationing in Britain

How rationing was seen by our American cousins as the war came closer to an end. This film from 1944 shows how little we were on. I love it how she says, 'Finally, a full pound of bacon'. How we take our pork for granted. We won't be taking our veg for granted next year as we go towards a #wartimegarden (this is the hashtag we're using on twitter). We may also end up bartering like little Jimmy in the film below. We'd like to thank those individuals and groups who have contacted us and will be joining in on their plots. If you have any stories, images or posters from the war do contact us here or via twitter @lifeonpigrow and we'll share as we move towards the first sowing in March (that seems such a long way away at the moment).
