As a few of you’ve noted from my blogs, we’re moving!
700 miles away and 1-1/2 zones from my norm.
I’m incredibly excited and disappointed at the same time. We’re getting ready to begin a new adventure and live closer to some of our best friends and my parents. And I cannot wait to be back at my Lake Michigan! The best part – NO MORE BERMUDA GRASS!
The downside is that we’ll be leaving my gardens behind at peak harvesting as well as all of our birds. We’ve got a good friend down here that will be taking our chickens and the tractors we built. Yeah, the ones we spent all of spring building…
Hopefully once we get settled we can come get a few of the birds and one of the tractors.
The turkeys may be harvested early, and the guineas are going to the fellow that owns our CSA. Everyone will be well taken care of … um, but for the turkeys (though we’ll do our best to make it quick and gentle).
Leaving the garden behind makes me terribly sad. It has done so very well this year – the best since we’ve moved here – and I’ll be able to harvest very little of it. I’m hoping I can at least get some seeds for our next garden, so that I can reap some of the bounty in the future.
I’ll be taking some of my favorite landscaping plants with us, and storing what I can at my parent’s house until we get more permanent living quarters. It’s been too hot and humid lately to even think about gardening.
So for now I’ll be putting much of my blogging and journaling on hold. The next month will be absolute madness and I cannot wait to get the adventure started!
