After living in the city for the past twenty years, I finally decided that I had had enough of the hustle and bustle of city life. I wanted to move out to the country, where I could have a large piece of land. I always enjoyed gardening, and had even had a little window box garden in my condo. But I longed to grow a real garden, with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and maybe even watermelon. I had been looking at homes for a long time, but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. Some homes had a beautiful yard, but the house needed too much work, or the house was beautiful, but the yard was too small. Finally, I found the perfect house. The yard was large enough for a good-sized garden, and the house needed very little work. The biggest thing it lacked was an efficient HVAC system. I knew it would be worth it to have the old system replaced. I know that the newer systems are much more efficient and would save me money on my utility bills. I purchased the house, and immediately hired an HVAC company to install a new, high-efficiency HVAC system, with zone control. It’s a large house, so I think it’s important to be able to control the temperature in individual areas of the house. I can’t wait to move in and get my garden planted. I’m hoping that I’ll reap enough produce to start canning some of it. The only thing I will miss about the city, is that I have to drive everywhere, rather than take the bus or train.
