Dayton-Xenia Road Construction Update
March 22, 2017
Just heard back from the city with an update on the road work and closure.
At this time it looks like the road will not be closed until after June 1. Until then, there will be periodic disruptions, but no closures.
The gas lines are just starting to be relocated, which will take about a month.
Near the end of April, the electric, phone and fiber lines will be relocated which will also take about a month.
Once that is accomplished the road will be closed for a period of about ten days at the eastern corner of our property. This is to replace the culvert for the creek that runs through our property. After that, at least one lane of traffic, and usually 2, will be open, but with periodic delays.
In the meantime, if you would like to know the road conditions at the moment for a planned trip to visit us, just call our office and we will walk outside and give you as much of an update as we can see in both directions.
Hope to see you soon.
Seed Potatoes and Asparagus Roots
March 14, 2017
Just arrived! Certified Organic seed potatoes. This year our choices include Purple Viking, Red Gold and Yukon Gold.
Also new this year, we have Jersey Supreme Asparagus roots in stock. These are one year crowns, however they are conventionally grown rather than organic. So far, we haven't found a good source for organic asparagus roots. As soon as it warms up a bit, it will be a great time to get the asparagus in the ground. Shortly after that, it's potato planting time!
We will get updates on greenhouse grown organic vegetable seedlings as they come along. The cold weather has slowed them down quite a bit, but eventually they'll catch up.
Hope to see you soon. We’ll update our Deal’s Blog page often as we move into spring!
