You don’t know what you’ve got ’till it’s gone

When we moved last fall, we left in the manner of the children of Israel fleeing Egypt.  We got the hell out of there as fast as we could.  Unlike the Hebrews, however, we left with the promise that we would return in spring to clean up all the crap we left behind.  So this past weekend we headed back to the old house for some spring clean-up.  We also transplanted our two fruit trees, an apple and a pear.  They are both in full bloom - so if they survive the transplant, we should have fresh fruit this summer and fall.

We lived at that house for 5 years - and each year we spent a great deal of time preparing the garden beds.  We added compost by the wheelbarrow-full every year.  We mulched and weeded and watered and turned over every year.  In contrast, the new MCH is built on clay.  Rocky clay.  I know because I spent all last week digging post-holes by hand.  Eventually there was so much clay piled around the yard that the kids started making sculptures to sell.

I remember complaining about the soil at the old MCH - with it’s rocks and bricks and sand.   But now, looking back, we had it pretty good.  I know in five years our gardens at the new MCH will be just as nice - with rich black soil that grows anything and everything.  But right now, I wish I’d spent more time enjoying the garden I had instead of complaining about how I wish it would be.  Thankfully, I don’t have that problem in any other area of my life.  Just with garden soil.
