As the news catches up with scientists (they’ve been worried for weeks), I’ve been thinking about victory gardens.
Is anyone else thinking about increasing their food production? I’m trying new things – potatoes, if we can find seed potatoes anywhere; beets; and increasing the number of other veggies. I’ve put in berries and left out squash for the chickens so that I’ll have volunteers. We put mushroom plugs in a log last summer, and I hope they will spawn.
The apples are blossoming.
We are selling our excess eggs, too. I have had an uptick in inquiries, but won’t deliver. I suspect that will be popular for a while. The less we can be in the grocery store, the better.
I feel anxious all the time now, but planning by growing food will help. I haven’t left the property in a week. I am thankful for the three acres we have now, so I can at least get out and walk. Stay home. Stay safe. Look at the flowers and birds.
