If you have followed my blog for the last year you may have even got tired of my suggestion that I wrote about over and over and over to get seeds, and plant a garden. Well it looks like seeds just might become like toilet paper. There just wont be any available. The COVID19 virus has caused people to pause and think where their food might come from if there was no food at the grocery store. The best I can tell is that seed providers are now being completely overloaded with orders like they have never seen before. These seed company’s are having the same labor shortages and problems many are having. Keeping away from large numbers of people. One infection could shut down seed shipping. My take on this is if you do not have your seeds now, it may be to late to get a garden stared this spring.
My suggestion is that you head anyplace that carry seeds and purchase what you need now and for the next couple of years.
I hate to say this, but I told you so, but had no idea that this virus would start the panic buying of vegetable seeds. All along I was hoping people would wake up because of the Grand Solar Minimum, which BY THEY WAY is hitting the US and other places even harder than last year.
If you have not woken up and see what is coming, I am to the point of exhaustion talking about this. This may be your last wake up call. But that is your choice.
Take care of your self. I am staying home until this is over, but personally there will be some really bad financial problems along with this virus. If you really care about your self, your family and others, I would suggest that you look back on Christmas as the last time that things were sane. I have a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach that life soon will never be the same. But what does an old 76 year old crazy man know. Hope to have a blog out soon on the progress of my 2020 garden here in Central Texas.
Best of luck and pray to the living and loving God that this passes over you and your family
