Default Changes to gardening goals

Just wondering. With the current state of affairs and seeing again how some people respond with a hoarding mentality, are any of you expecting to plant bigger gardens or different types of fruits and vegetables?

No plans to expand the size of our garden right now. We're taking a wait and see approach.

No I plant more than I use already.
May plant more squash though and cut back on potatoes, as I do not use near what I get.

My situation is pretty much like Riebe's. I have a 8'x12' green house and a 30' x 60' garden space. On a good year I give a lot away and on an average year I still have plenty. Seems like when one thing doesn't do well, something else does better then expected.

I plan to double mine and give away a bunch of produce to my elder friends.
