Pandemic Surprises

Many of us seniors remember helping our parents and grandparents tend a garden. For those of us born in the depression era, gardening was a necessity. We had to grow our own food, can and sometimes freeze it in the fall, so we would have something to eat throughout the winter months. Some low-income families still consider gardening a necessity for putting a meal on the table. There are even non-profit organizations that teach people in need how to garden and put healthy food on their tables. This pandemic we are living through can lead us on to better choices about what we grow and eat, if we allow ourselves to learn.

One in three families in the United States have a garden. And many people are taking up gardening during the COVID-19 pandemic that requires us to stay home. But if you have never gardened, how do you know where to begin?
