Steps towards North Carolina

Okay, not really huge steps, but maybe a few baby steps to get me in the right direction…  Today I ordered three gardening books that I’m hoping will help me with the beginnings of a successful, bountiful, self-sustaining edible landscape.

1.  “The Berry Grower’s Companion” by Barbara L. Bowling
2.  “The Backyard Orchardist:  A Complete Guide to Growing Fruit Trees in the Home Garden” by Stella Otto
3.  ” The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible (10th Anniversary Edition)” by Edward C. Smith

I’m having them shipped directly to my husband’s office in Charlotte, so they will be waiting for me when I get up there.  I think these three books along with several herb books I already have will really give me a rounded education in setting up my garden to fit my family’s needs.  The only other thing I’ll need to get information on is growing my own wheat and/or other grains.  I have an interest, but I don’t know how feasible it would be at this point.  I guess I’ll have to look into that, too.

Tomorrow I will be calling some freight companies to find out the pricing and process for shipping some of our things on pallets right to my husband’s office.  There is warehouse space available to us, so we will be able to ship our belongings and utilize free storage, enabling us to take our time in moving things into the new house.  I love the idea of doing it a couple of boxes at a time instead of having one room full of boxes and feeling overwhelmed at getting everything unpacked at once!!

Moving into a new house with NO CLUTTER!!!  Talk about freedom!
