Food is quickly disappearing from the supermarket shelves and being replaced with great difficulty (if at all).
The country can’t feed itself because most food is imported from foreign lands.
But coronavirus is locking down countries and preventing international trade, imports and exports.
The back-to-the-land, family farm, grow-your-own, small-is-beautiful, ethic of Catholic social doctrine is proven time and time again in times of crisis to be uncommon common sense in a nonsensical world.
Spring is coming. Get planting. Keep chickens and other small livestock if you can.
Fields, back-garden, front-lawn, window boxes, raised-beds, community wasteland. It doesn’t matter. Get planting and grow your own.
If not with coronavirus, starvation will inevitably come with a vengeance during some other crisis.
Get planting and flee to the fields.
