More Than 1/2 US Homes Planting “Recession Gardens”

A National Gardening research center report says 43 million of the 111 million households in the US will grow at least some of their own fruits, vegetables, berries and herbs in 2009.

Garden centers have reported almost a 20% increase in sales over last year’s figures as people across N.A. re-establish ‘Victory Gardens’, as they were known during WW II food shortages.

Long term food security in a time of widespread global drought is also a growing concern.
