You Know You're in New Mexico

...when helping a friend move involves digging up buckets of dirt and moving them, too!

I recently helped a friend to move and we did exactly that. We dug up dirt, put it into buckets and transferred it to her new house. Never in a million years would I have thought of doing that back east! But she was right. Here in New Mexico, you can spend a lot of money enriching the earth to get it bear fruit. You really don't want to leave behind an expensive flower bed only to have to replace it at a new place. (Just this weekend, in fact, I spent $35 on soil!)
