    There’s a planned food shortage coming. We all need to learn to grow as much food as possible.

    For the first time I planted a garden March 5 in Virginia. Harvestime is here already. Cabbage broccoli and lots of lettuce and spinach and radishes. No bugs either and beautiful collard heads.

    I planted my garlic in October. And I was surprised when I found a Brussells Sprout plant survived the winter. It is now about 12" tall.

    My grandmothers strawberries planted last year were completely unfazed by the 24 hours of snow Ontario got last week!

    France declared its plantes nursery essential.
    Because French people eat vegetables.

    Our big box store moved the seed displays into the food aisles, to give shoppers access.

  18. garth mcgibbon on August 17, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    My tomato’s are 18” high and my neighbors started planting today May 6.

    Stubborn plants man ………ha. ha. On a more serious note Luke I am seeing something that goes against a number of ways of thinking that seem to be prevalent among gardeners. This year more than any otherI’ve seen how hardly chives REALLY ARE in early spring. Even saw onion plants I thought I did away with grow out of clay like soil from a few inches deep. Got an education on plants that do better in cooler weather.. Might just try and start but to first test it with a few seeds first and go from there. Especially in a weather circumstance that is present in Maritime Canada where we have been getting swings in daytime highs this year.”

    Make sure to plant your seeds at least 6 feet apart for social plant distancing! LOL

    I can’t believe Michigan did that last year. If it wasn’t for gardening last year, I would have lost my mind.

  39. Jessica Miller on August 17, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    You were the only place I could get seeds from last year. And, the reason I got to have a garden. I gave plants to 3 different people who had never gardened before. And, they have gardens this year too. Thanks for helping me spread the gardening love.

  40. Nicole Rowe-sullivan on August 17, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    The government don’t want u to grow cause they want u dependent on them. How dare u grow your own food during this pandemic that kills no one. How can u even eat watching no one die.

  41. Ontario Gardening on August 17, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    We had the same issue here in Ontario. Luckily, it was resolved shortly after and we were able to move forward with our Spring and summer planting. Hope everyone else was able to start their gardens without any issues!
