THIS IS NOT A DRILL: Garden Gnome Shortage 2021!!!!!!!!


THE SUEZ CANAL STRIKES AGAIN!

First there was the great TP shortage of 2020. A run on yeast for bread-making. Aluminum cans. Pepperoni. Even Dog's beloved bacon is in short supply. And now the aftermath of the Suez Canal blockage is starting to take affect. The latest shortage is affecting gardens everywhere: good luck finding garden gnomes!

Iain Wylie, chief executive of the Garden Center Association, states:

"With goods arriving from abroad, garden centers were affected by the ship getting stuck in the canal as much as any other industry. Garden furniture, ornaments, of which gnomes would be some, being stuck in containers trying to come over here."

Whatever will we do without our beloved garden gnomes!?
