Spring means it’s garden season. As at-home planters ready their gardens, they have to choose from the many, many, MANY varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs to plant. As you flip through seed catalogs or peruse the vast amount of seed stores online, you may notice the words “hybrid” and “heirloom” thrown around.

Victory Gardens, originally called war gardens, got started during WWI and WWII. The Victory Garden movement has revived in 2020, in efforts to prepare for the COVID-19 pandemic.
