Sightings: Staying sane during lockdown

Baking bread was more productive than doomscrolling, but who started gardening last year to keep busy during the pandemic? Staying sane indoors while in lockdown for chunks of the past 11 months has led to some creative new hobbies for some, including these industry friends who kept busy crocheting, befriending local wildlife and attacking their kitchens.

Staying in touch can be a real challenge with travel restrictions and limited networking opportunities. Keep an eye out for your industry friends and colleagues — and have a little fun in the process — with our Sightings: Face to Face with the Produce Industry series. Be sure to get yourself out there in March when we're asking you to submit photos of yourself in your team colors — alma mater, favorite sports team, etc. Show us your colors and submit your photo, name and company name to [email protected].
