Did everyone notice the start to the Daily-ish today?
'Tis a glorious time in my neck of the woods to be an introvert. Events are canceled, and I just get to stay home, plant a garden, and be with my kids. Nicole Alderman here, with some reading, watching, and listening material for you in case you need something more to pass the time!
This and Nicole's meme are what I'm going to be spreading. Most people panic when they feel helpless, we aren't helpless, we don't need to panic, you get a break from the world, and time to garden. Planting food is both a good insurance policy, and getting out in the sun and soil strengthens your body and calms your mind. Which is what is needed right now.
I'm so excited to see the message spread! I really truly think this is the perfect thing for many of us to do. It's March, a great time in many areas to plant a bunch of stuff. And some of us have school canceled for 6 weeks--that's most of the planting season, and enough time to watch radishes grow from seed to tasty round balls of goodness.
Grocery stores are insane right now, so it makes even more sense to grow food. And good, healthy homegrown food, fresh air, and vitamin D will do a LOT to keep us all healthy.
And, planting seeds is science. There's so much for kids to learn, even if they're just growing some strawberries and radishes or peas in a pot.
Yesterday my son helped me transplant strawberries under our new cherry tree. I'm going to head back out there and plant some cabbage and lettuce with my kids!
