Mew guys know we don't talk politics, current affairs or the like here but we feel it necessary to impart this info we've just had.
We've just had intel that a family who live a few miles away from us in a busy little market town have tested positive for Covid-19. They have recently returned from skiing in Northern Italy and did not self-quarantine upon their return - oh dear!
We've also heard that some of the local residents are quite angry as the family have been carrying on as normal for the past couple of weeks, therefore it's quite possible a huge outbreak will be imminent in the coming days near us.
Yesterday some local shops were stripped bare; they were picked cleaner than a vultures convention in the Serengeti, the only thing left - bare bones!
We have noticed on our necessary recon trips out into the real world in the last couple of weeks that madness is prevailing through fear; there's a lot of panic arising from 'POSSIBLE' food shortages due to disruption in the supply chain being spread about which isn't helping anyone.
Toilet paper and hand wash/sanitizer are also rarer than gold on the streets right now, so we don't know how this thing is going to go over the coming weeks/months. For years it's been said that 'we' as a society are just 9 meals away from anarchy, and after seeing that Italy has just been completely shut down we may see some truth in that statement.
So we're just sitting tight at BBHQ and we'll update more on this situation as and when we have new intel from our small district.
Stay safe all, and let's keep calm and weather this brewing storm.
Finally this week...
We're just getting ready to start sowing this year's veg crop, but more impawtantly the catnip crop, as last year when the P.A. was out of action for all those months our catnip was severely abused by the night-crawler kitty crowd invading our garden. The poor catnip was destroyed aftur one wild pawty and it neffur recovered properly.
So we're really looking forward to a brand new batch in the coming months.
This week we're also planting: Tomato's, broccoli, leeks, carrots, cauliflower, beans, and a couple of other things. We're getting the seeds going on a sunny windowsill and will be staggering planting so we have a constant supply.
Are mew growing anything this year and if so, what's your top planting tip?
