First, Don’t Panic. There’s No Shortage of Food.
As alarming as it is to see bare shelves in the supermarket, food producers and reports from the USDA say there’s plenty of food to go around. Unfortunately, news of the coronavirus has scared us into panic-buying and hoarding. Sometimes we can’t find the basic foods we want, like lettuce for salads, tomatoes for sauces and stews, and pantry staples like dried beans and spices. Then again, some of us are avoiding going into the stores at all, unsure how to protect ourselves from this invisible enemy.
All this has led to a bump in buying seeds and plants and searching for gardening tips online, so we can grow produce at home. The good news is that many fruits and veggies are easy to grow, even for beginners. They’ll thrive whether you’re gardening in a backyard plot or in containers on your patio, porch or apartment balcony. To help your garden thrive, consider adding these plants that attract honeybees to your garden.
