Taking enough potted plants?

Potted plants to take to new homestead.

Is it still considered moving if all the dirt goes with us in the form of potted plants?

About us: Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton spent over a decade living self-sufficiently in the mountains of Virginia before moving north to start over from scratch in the foothills of Ohio. They've experimented with permaculture, no-till gardening, trailersteading, home-based microbusinesses and much more, writing about their adventures in both blogs and books.

So how many plants have you potted up so far? And how are you two doing the move? Renting a truck, hauling bit by bit, or leaving most behind? We're moving to Oregon in a coupe of weeks. Like you, we bought before we sold, so we have time to return to our old home for a second trip to get things if they don't fit in the rental truck the first time. I have a very small garden this year, so not much to pot up. In fact, I'm only taking a few herbs, a handful of annuals, 3 blackberries, and some purple phormium. And even so, I gotta make a plan for how they will travel. Maybe in the moving truck?
