There is a saying that the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. In the past couple of weeks, too many plans to count have went awry due to the attempt to slow or limit the spread of COVID-19. Here’s an update from Hamilton Native Outpost:
We’re Still Open...
It is perfect time to be planting warm season grass seed, and spending time outside drilling or broadcasting seed is a perfect way to avoid contact with people. So, if your ground is prepared, go ahead and contact us to get your seed on the way. UPS or a freight company can deliver it to your door so that there is no need to come pick it up. Or, if you desire to pick up seed, we have space so you can maintain your distance while talking to us and plenty of soap and water to wash your hands. We can also make arrangements, if we know you are coming, to have your seed sitting outside so that you can pick it up without coming into contact with our staff.
As for now, our intentions are to continue shipping seed through the rest of this spring while at the same time making necessary changes to do our part to slow the spread of the virus. But you know what they say about the best-laid plans of mice and men, so don’t miss the opportunity to get your seed planted – allow time for delays and go ahead and get the seed on the way.
Field Day Plans
Our field days are scheduled for mid-May and early-June. We are reserving judgement until closer to time to see if we can proceed as planned or need to cancel or postpone the events due to COVID-19. If the events are canceled, we plan to release a video version. If you are interested in coming, go ahead and let us know by RSVPing; in this way you will be on the list to attend or be notified of postponements or we can pass along how to access the video version.
