Dig for Victory

I got a DVD in the mail today called Dig for Victory. It's a BBC film about the garden movement in England during WW2. 1/2 of the households in England grew at least part of their own food. They grew their own food to free up the food for the troops. It was their part of the war effort. America also had victory gardens. I guess Germany also had the same thing going on during the war. Imagine what would happen if we all would just dig up our grass and grew vegetables instead? Why can we do it in war time, and stop doing it today. We may not need to feed the troops, but there are hungry people in the world. Maybe we should fight the war on poverty? We have the land, and the know how. Why do we have huger? Why grass and not potatoes?
