Can we finally plant?

Hey, Rich Dale here.  Plants have nothing to do with COVID-19, but getting plants sure does!  (I sure haven’t heard anything about plants being able to transmit the virus.  Fingers crossed.)

In my house, my wife is the plant person.  This morning, she went to Lowe’s and bought the $400 worth of plants you see in the picture.  And when she goes out, she’s prepared.  She took with her sanitizing wipes to wipe down the shopping cart, a package of disposable masks, and most importantly, one credit card.

The store had an unusually large number of plants, and yet there weren’t a ton of people there.  Those things are probably related.  A lot of people probably aren’t comfortable going shopping yet, and who can blame them?

Personally, I would’ve used the pandemic as a sign that I shouldn’t buy plants this year.  I could imagine converting all of our flower space to some nice gravel.  Which incidentally never has to be watered.

Don’t tell my wife I said that.  I’m not saying it would be grounds for divorce, but why take a chance.
