While the rest of the country is panic buying because of the COVID-19 pandemic, those who have taken up home gardening and prepping aren’t too worried about possible food shortages.

After all, if you have a home garden, you can harvest vegetables in your backyard.

Now’s the time to start a home garden

Because of the pandemic, store shelves are often emptied out wherever you go. If you’re lucky enough to find a store that’s still selling food and supplies, you have a long wait ahead of you before you can check out with your groceries.

Jameson Altott, who lives outside Pittsburgh, isn’t worried about running out of food. He grows more than half the food for his family in a large home garden.

Altott shared that his family is lucky since, despite the pandemic, they have a lot of preserved food. He added that they also have canned fruits and vegetables and jams and berries in the freezer. Altott’s family also has some meat stored in the freezer, which should tide them over in the event of a food shortage.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, more people are showing an interest in starting home gardens. Oregon State University‘s (OSU) Master Gardener program took notice of the growing interest.

To help citizens who want to grow their own food, the university kindly made their online vegetable gardening course free until the end of April. OSU’s post on Facebook has been shared over 21,000 times.
