I have decided that further weeding bees at BA 48 and 49 will be suspended for the foreseeable future. I came to this decision in the interests of protecting us from Covid-19. Although the decision goes beyond what federal and state governments are recommending in terms of social isolating, I feel this epidemic is escalating daily and so are the government and private restrictions and reactions to it. Personally I feel minimizing human interaction is important in slowing it, if not containing it. In line with what a number of companies, groups and organizations are doing to minimize human contact and because our weeding efforts are not essential, though important, I felt it best to err on the safe side. I still plan to head down and lop off some Asparagus Fern and Broad-Leaf Peppers on the odd occasion, just so the weeds don’t feel we have forgotten them and to get some exercise.
