We're growing a few things. I'm in charge of the red onions and wifey is in charge of everything else.

I should put my hubby in charge of something.

Yes, some of the gardening things can cost more than buying the produce at the store - I bought a strawberry hanging basket for $15 and probably got about $2 worth of strawberries from it.  But it was nice to look at.

My potatoes did well last year I had enough to keep us in spuds for five months and that was giving about 1/3 of them away. This year we are looking into sorting out some cold storage so then I could keep more and even save my own seed potatoes.

Last year, my wife planted a variety of vegetables. I'd love to say it produced a bumper crop....

The 5G network phone masts are not what is making the coronavirus worse. It's those supermarket parking ticket machines.

Yes, cats ought to be placed into huge transparent hamster balls before being let out.

Outpourings / Veggie gardens

They are being called crisis gardens these days, but have been called other things in the past like Victory gardens. It is good to return to the soil in times of trouble and I think this is also a case of keeping entertained at home if this goes on all summer, Canadians are buying in their seed early this year.  The two big Canadian mail seed sellers are having super high demand - one is not taking on new customers and the other is saying orders will be late and could be short items.

I was so pleased to be able to pick up seed potatoes in my local grocery shop on Friday. We still have snow hip high in some places, so gardening is a ways off for me yet, but it was something I was looking forward to all winter, even before gardening trended so I'm glad I still will be able to do that.

The pet rescues here were saying that you can't get it from your pets - people had been dropping off pets because of fear of contamination before this news. I don't know what this story will mean to house cats.

Outpourings / Zoo says one of its tigers has tested positive for coronavirus

Zoo says one of its tigers has tested positive for coronavirus.

So they're testing tigers but not pesky people.

In any case, it's probably a good idea to stay two metres away from tigers from now on.
