What do you do when your seed orders to fill in-house shoot up to 8,000 overnight? This is what we are dealing with since the Coronavirus every day. The past month has been a whirlwind of activity, mostly off of our farm. Honestly, because we spend anywhere from ten to fourteen hours a day, six or seven days a week, working or driving to and from work (one hour each way), I have not been able to keep up with daily blogging on here. The seed orders continue to pour in. We are grateful, but overwhelmed.
Sometimes, on Facebook, I see friends complaining about how bored they are during quarantine. I have not had one day of quarantine. I would like a week of it so I could get caught up on laundry and fixing up our new home. That would be great but thousands of seed orders await and as a part of the agricultural community, we have an essential business--David's Garden Seeds®.
While David and I went to San Antonio to work, our son, Matt, was kind enough to take Lucy to the vet. Lucy has been scratching and biting hair off of herself again in various parts of her body. She does this every few years and needs a steroid and antibiotics. It is a liver enzyme problem. Sure enough, the new vet out here in the country said the same thing and Lucy is now on pills and a spray to make her well.
Meanwhile back at the office, we are drowning in orders.
More orders to plow through. Kitty decided she wanted to be on the blog so she posed here on a robe.
A beautiful sunrise. We did not go into the office as early as we normally do so I was able to get this photo this morning. David had to meet with one of the workers about the store this morning. Don't worry--we made up for it by staying at work until almost 8pm.
Another day that we did not go in quite as early as David had to meet with an electrician, but we got there not too late. We have a good staff that works to help us fill orders but they do it better when we are there constantly checking and directing them.
Today, we got to pick a beautiful bunch of strawberries out of our garden before we went to work. Sometimes, you just have to tend your garden!
Today is our 33rd wedding anniversary! It is hard to believe it has been that long because it feels like it was just yesterday that I put on a beautiful bridal gown and walked down the aisle accompanied by my father. The years have flown by. We are a bit heavier than we were back then, but God is blessing us in an incredible way. Being an essential business, we are able to work and provide a good living for our crew. We spent most of the day at work in San Antonio, filling your orders.
We could not go out to eat because no restaurants are open so we went back to the farm and folded laundry!
Since we could not go to church, we went to work again to fill more of your seed orders. We watched church on our phones and two of our crew joined us there.
We are David's Garden Seeds®. If you need great seeds, we've got about 1500 varieties to choose from.
