Thanks to Bort for sending from Frager’s, Eastern Market, Saturday.

*This series will feature any pets in a backpack/bag. On metro, or not. Corgi, or not.

And while I got a photo of seeds up there – another reader would like to know:

“I’m looking for a good, appropriately socially distant way to get flowers/ plants/ seeds during this. Are there any nurseries/ farmstands/ local growers offering pre-paid delivery or pick-up?
