It's sort of sad. I had my son destroy the garden yesterday. No garden this year. We're moving. Actually, my husband is moving to Minnesota pretty soon to start his new job and the rest of us are coming up once we buy a house (my husband will be staying in a small apartment while we house hunt). It won't be a swift thing because we have a senior in high school and we're going to allow her to graduate. Lots of stuff to get arranged. I really doubt I'll put in a new garden this year at our new place (which we don't have yet!), or if I do put in a garden it'll be small. I've got so much to learn! I've never gardened in such a cold place. I haven't moved in twenty years. This is going to be a big job, but a job I'm ready to take on. Once I make a decision I want to rush ahead with it. It is hard for me to have to wait so long before we move. But we made this decision as a family and it is for the best. I've done so much with our little place here. I've got several apple trees, blueberry bushes, a large strawberry patch, a nice sized garden, chickens, etc. I've done so much with the small amount of land I have. Getting the right type of yard is going to be top priority for the house we choose up there. Hodgson's Homestead is moving north.

I love reading your blog. I have thought about your home and yard as I read. I'm hoping you will continue to blog even if you don't have a garden this year. You are a delight to read. Not the usual things on your blog.
