COVID 19: A view from Japan

A former colleague of ours recently relocated to Japan from the Hampton Roads, VA, USA area. Upon arrival her and her husband were in quarantine for 14 days, the typical time for a COVID 19 quarantine. They are settling in okay. She reported that the Japanese measures for preventing the spread of COVID 19 were much stricter than here in the states. After their 14 day quarantine, they took a COVID 19 test via nasal and were cleared to come out from their hotel. During the quarantine they could not leave for even food. Food was brought to them by their sponsor. Indeed Japan has over 10 ways to recycle and are reported to have an extensive and strict recycling plan.

What could we learn from our neighbors? What if the COVID 19 cases numbers fell within 2 months in the U.S.? Indeed to this day some states are still experiencing spikes. What should a national plan for the U.S. look like? Japan was slated to host the 2020 Olympics, which was canceled because of the pandemic.

Gardening during a Pandemic

During World War II food rationing was introduced in the United States, prompting Americans to grow their own fruits and vegetables in order to sustain themselves during tough times. It’s estimated that by 1944, roughly 20 million victory gardens were grown, resulting in 8 million tons of food. That’s was about 40 percent of the country’s supply of fresh produce at the time!

Though we are currently not experiencing a food shortage crisis, being self sufficient and resourceful at a time when essentials (honestly, where is the garlic?) are frequently sold out at grocery stories, isn’t a bad thing. Plus, are we all looking for a new hobby during quarantine?

We used this book when starting our own garden.

During uncertain times being proactive and not waiting for the next crisis to hit is a good idea. Indeed staff at garden centers and nurseries have reported an increase in those purchasing garden supplies. People have several of their own reasons for starting a garden and the pandemic seems to be chief among them. What do you need to get your own garden started? What is your reason for starting your own garden? What do you do differently now since the pandemic? Share your comments with the community by posting them below.

MiMi & Mom

With home schooling and staying close to home we were quickly running out of ideas to keep MiMi occupied. Thank you for inspiring us to get our own growing kit! We also took the bottoms of her Dad’s green onion used for cooking. We are growing the roots in water in hopes to plant them in soil soon. We were surprised to see how FAST it grew in a matter of days. We also are considering a small herb garden in pots to surprise Dad for Father’s Day. Thank you for always sharing and keeping us inspired!
