I was going to hold off on mentioning a word about it until after closing, but given my current garden situation I have no choice. My husband and I are officially buying a house and expecting to close within the next few weeks! As absolutely excited as I am, it has also been very stressful. Aside from the typical stress associated with buying a 200+ year old home, it is planting season! I had to accept (no matter how hard it was) the fact that I wouldn’t be able to swing my massive garden this year. But my beautiful, textbook perfect heirlooms that I started from seed and have been nurturing and doting on hand and foot have to be planted. That’s one thing that I can’t budge on. I can’t plant them where I live now (because I’m moving obviously) and the new house is getting a brand new septic system and leach bed whose location is up in the air at the moment. Although I got permission to plant at the new house before closing, I couldn’t safely plant them anywhere for fear they would get dug up or plowed over with heavy equipment.
