    Lessons from the Great War - Britain

    I'm fascinated by the resilience of English during the Great War. It's an interesting period in history and there is much to learn by studying how people got on in daily life. I fear we might need the knowledge one day soon.

    Rabbits were raised for food. They were provided kitchen scraps and material from victory gardens. I seem to recall 38 days or something similar as the cycle between birth and ready to eat. Rabbits were raised in hutches.

    Neighbors joined together in pig clubs at the onset of the war. They provided kitchen scraps and all received a share of the pig at slaughter time.

    These are a few of many lessons from the period. Fascinating.

    I donated my kitchen scraps to my neighbor, but he said to throw my garbage on my own lawn.
