Some veggies

Some of the Fenway Victory Garden plots do have vegetables, in fact "best vegetable garden" is one of the awards they give out every season. But yes, most plots sport mainly florals and non-veggie plants and the kind of landscape design that you see in suburban back yards.

These gardens were created as WWII victory gardens. That war is over and the gardens now are mostly ornamental.

(it's also hard to grow vegetables there because of critters)

Why don't you visit Victory Gardens before complaining. There are several garden plots that gardeners use to grow vegetables.

Not everyone besides yourself is ignorant of how Victory Gardens originated or of other measures that the "home front" took during WWII. We get it. Your point is made.
