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 as well as getting ready for the Christmas season with bow making for the 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 right at Thanksgiving for the Christmas season!
When the nursery had a plantation of trees to cut in Pennsylvania years ago, every Thanksgiving would be spent cutting, dragging and then baling the cut trees to be loaded onto a flat bed truck to be hauled to Ohio. Read entire blog entry

  Fresh produce, including Seiberling's sweet corn and Ohio grown tomatoes, along with favorites such as sweet cherries, lo0cal peaches, green beans, onions, potatoes and so much more.  Yum!
