What Every Gardener Dreams of Getting

Well, at least what this gardener dreams of getting.

Because I garden on the side of a Missouri limestone hill, one of the rarest commodities I have is soil. I do my best to make it, from crushing leaves into holes to bringing in mulch until it decomposes enough to be a planting base. Those sources seem like samples of soil so little they are.

I don't always have the time to wait for nature to make some and I have soil brought in. By the truck-full. By the dump truck-full.

It's a lot of work to get it moved but what joy to have it so close!
