Artist Statement

Though this photo is undated, it is believed to have been taken during the era of rationing in the United States in World War II. During this time, citizens were encouraged to grow their own food in "victory gardens", which not only helped them avoid the limits imposed by rationing, but also allowed for more food to be shipped overseas to American soldiers. These victory gardeners were urged to grow enough fruits and vegetables to can and put aside for winter. The government sent out pamphlets and provided services that taught people how to can produce at home.

The jars pictured here are Kilner Glass jars, though they are fashioned in the popular Mason jar style with the metal band. The jar had been patented nearly 100 years before this photograph was taken, but it was—and still is!—the most popular jar style for home-canned goods.
