Today was our watering day, so I got up early and started at 7:00 a.m. The garden is really feeling alive. I'm excited to see how things do this year. It's taken many years to get into the swing of things, so that there is something always in bloom, ready to harvest, and another fruit tree on deck. It's so satisfying to grow your own food.

With this pandemic, I am even more determined to grow as much as I can. I have only been grocery shopping every two weeks. With the outbreak as severe as it is, I may make it a goal to shop just once a month. I am hesitant to go back to Costco now. I love buying things in bulk, but prefer shopping at a small, local store that isn't crowded. It just feels safer to me. I am able to pick my produce up at the co-op from my car, which I really appreciate. I am staying away from everyone! This virus is so contagious...it makes me very wary of being in crowded places. I have been staying home, enjoying the porch and my backyard orchard. I go for a walk or bike ride each morning, and do yoga or Pilates at night.
How are you doing? Is your food supply holding out? What have you learned?
