Are you going to wait until the food supplies run out and then do something about it? A true prepper knows better! Start gardening now and ensure your family has enough food supply for the duration of this pandemic.
Why Should You Start Gardening Now
In recent years, self-sustainability has gone by the wayside. Our increasingly busy lives have led to a reliance on supply chain and infrastructure.
Forget gardening and farming. Many Americans aren’t even doing their own grocery shopping anymore, with curbside pickup and grocery delivery growing in popularity.
But the coronavirus pandemic has alarmed younger generations, as the realization that life as we know it may not be so sustainable. Older generations lived through the Great Depression, world wars, and several severe recessions.
Some even recall previous pandemics. Baby boomers and younger have not experienced the same hardships; an expectation that everything we need will be readily available has become common.
With time on their hands and access to food limited, Americans are taking up gardening. In addition to purchasing seeds, chickens are also hot commodities after egg shortages have been an ongoing issue in stores.
Gardening is the answer to so many of the problems America is facing.
