Just discovered this thread! How fun! No change in gardening plans with Covid.I didn't find a post about gardening this year so here it is! What are you planting? Has the virus changed your gardening plans?
I was going to just slightly enlarge my garden this year, easing back into it after not gardening for several years. However I am going at it full tilt now. I have almost tripled the size it was last year. Given the shortages, manmade or otherwise, I plan on growing as much as I can for my family. I have 2 rows of potatoes, cabbage, mustard and collard greens, peas and onions in the ground now. After the middle of May I can plant my tomatoes (2 kinds) peppers (5 kinds) beans, black eyes peas, green beans, squash, cucumbers and more. I need to buy another freezer, dehydrator and pressure canner before I start processing all of it. Some of the things I want to plant, I didn't get a chance to buy the seed before the craziness started so I either have to forgo those veggies or go to the nursery for plants...something that I am not comfortable doing right now. Our state still has over 60000 confirmed cases of covid -19. Our stay at home order is in place until May 18.
The tomatoes. I guess you could say that these are my version of sun-dried tomatoes. It works and I use these in place of sun-dried tomatoes in recipes. I also like to just chew on them. They're good! At some point, I'll dry tomatoes for tomato powder.
Nice tomatoes and day lilies. I just picked about a dozen tomatoes, and in a few days our neighbors will be getting gifties of them, as there are too many for the two of us. Of course, if I just planted 1 of them, something would be sure to go wrong. Also, our day lilies are just about done, although I did get some pictures of them.
