Mid County’s Victory Garden may have started last year, but the retro name harkens back to the World War II homefront.
Desiree McPhillips, the organizer, said this was intentional. “We liked the imagery of the old wartime garden photos,” she explained.
The Mid County Victory Garden is located on Nederland Avenue, just behind the Sheer Madness hair salon. Sheer Madness is McPhillips’s hair salon, which is the only salon in Southeast Texas that offers organic hair dye, she said.
