It has been both heartwarming and overwhelming to see Americans from every part of the country return to planting seeds during this strange and unpredictable time. The Covid-19 pandemic has shaken nearly every sector of the economy, and fears of food insecurity have sent many people rushing to buy seeds. At the same time, many people are gardening as a hobby or a therapeutic activity to help deal with the stress this has caused.
As a result, we have been inundated with orders just like all of our fellow seed companies, and we are unable to ship them out as quickly as they are coming in. We are also having our employees work far apart from each other while following strict cleaning protocols, which makes things go a little slower than usual. We have taken a couple of pauses on the website already, but it has only helped at little.
At this time, we have no choice but to limit the number of new seed orders we can accept while we catch up on existing orders. The website will update to show which products are shipping more quickly, and of course we always have gift certificates available if you are looking to send somebody a gift for their future garden.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this most unexpected time. We are all in this together, and we can make things return to normal more quickly if we all stay home and follow CDC safety guidelines to product our loved ones and neighbors. It's worth it for us, because you're worth it to us.
