August 18, 2017 As August rolls on, the nursery chores as always never stop.
Weed pulling, potting and replacing of more overwintering structures goes on

grave blanket business and porch pots! The cut trees from our southern Ohio
grower have been ordered since last January so that they will arrive on time

trees to be loaded onto a flat bed truck to be hauled to Ohio.
