Texas Reopening

This week there is a lot of talk about Texas reopening from all of the crazy shut downs due to Coronavirus.

Texas Reopening (Sort Of)

Monday, April 20, 2020

With Texas reopening soon from the Coronavirus, we are expecting some of our temporary workers, who are helping us fill unprecedented numbers of orders, to go back to their regular full time jobs soon.

The orders continue to pour in. Every few days, they will slow down and we think the panic seed buying is about over. Then, the orders pick up again. Of course, a lot of seed companies have closed for a month or more because they cannot keep up with the thousands of orders which means more orders for David's Garden Seeds®! Let me take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has placed an order for garden seeds to us this year! We truly appreciate the opportunity to serve you!

Here it is--another beautiful Tuesday with thousands of seed orders to fill. David and I went into San Antonio as usual and the governor is talking about lifting so many restrictions in Texas soon. Texas is reopening soon, at least partly. The first thing is that many "non-essential" employees will be going back to work with masks and social distancing.

Our company is essential so we never got to hibernate from corona in fear. We have been too busy filling orders each day to be afraid. We have masks because the City of San Antonio said all employers must provide masks for their employees.

There was a lot of talk of opening churches with people wearing masks and staying six feet apart. No thank you. I don't do masks unless absolutely necessary. I will go back to church only when I don't have to wear a mask so I can breathe.

Three of our temporary workers were out yesterday and today with sickness or personal excuses. This puts a strain on everyone else because we still have over 8,000 orders just sitting there every single day. The more we try to get them fulfilled quickly, the more others send in their orders. Because other seed companies are closed, we are getting so many more than we could have dreamed. We welcome the business.

Back on the farm, the store is almost ready to be filled. People are stopping by, asking to shop but there are no seeds there.

There was a lot of talk today about going to church in the church buildings this coming Sunday since the governor is talking about Texas reopening slowly. Several churches in the area are planning on church but sitting six feet apart and wearing stupid masks. I hate those masks. My nose is clogged because of the oak allergies and I cannot breathe through them.

Our next door neighbors finally moved in with a huge travel trailer until they build a home. We did not go into the office, so I got a bunch of laundry done as well as cleaning the house a bit. By the end of the day, I was exhausted. It was pretty hot outside. Some of our team worked out in the garden today, but I did not.

Our accountant came out to the farm so he could evaluate how much of the property is for our business. We completed our taxes and I will have to mail out a check next week. Our accountant saved us a lot of money this year because we bought the farm last summer!

Because the state is reopening, the governor of Texas, stated earlier this month that churches are essential so we got to attend our small country church. Our big San Antonio church was also open but they have to practice San Antonio social distancing with masks. Since we decided to take off from work, we did not attend the San Antonio church.

It was strange to see just a handful of people at the country church. I scheduled social media posts after lunch for David's Garden Seeds®.

I also continued to tackle laundry throughout the afternoon and evening.
