Zone 8 to Zone 5, A Relocation

Well, we have moved again. A relocation to be precise. I have been uprooted from my Zone 8 location and moved 2400 miles cross country to Zone 5!

Well, won't this be an adventure.

There will be some planning to do. And a lot of research.

Soil first.

The river to the east of us, a short walk.
