As typical to the name, market gardening included growing crops ready for the market. This included the crop of tomatoes, carrots and ‘tatties’ (potatoes), cabbages and brussel sprouts to name but a few. After being picked, they had to be boxed off ready for the market. Again, the Land Girls were responsible for the growing of these vegetables and fruit, more independently in this type of farming. As Mant recounts, some girls were given a book entitled ‘How to Grow and Produce Your Own Food’ and were expected to follow those instructions when undertaking their work. Mant describes that Land Girl’s would end up ‘smelling like a harvest festival’ (p. 222) – the reality of the government campaign ‘Dig For Victory’.
