Yesterday I went to the greenhouse where I bought seedlings of tomatoes, peppers and eggplants.
Prices have increased by 2 times compared to last year. We talked to the owner about her business. She's happy!
It looks like she's the only one working this year.
The stores were closed. Her greenhouse is located next to the house.
All of her clients have known her for a long time and are familiar with her well. Buy seedlings only from her.
She told an interesting fact. Because of coronavirus, it deprived the Italians of the opportunity to leave their homes in March and April.
Therefore, many people took land plots for rent and started cultivating the land.
They bought vegetable seedlings, planted them in their gardens and now grow organic vegetables.
This is a very positive point.
People did not stay at home, they found a way out of a hard situation and turned it to their advantage.
They spent time in the fresh air. Physically, they worked in their own gardens.
They have planted vegetables and will grow their own crops.
I hope that private agriculture will be revived. I am glad of this fact.
