Fields of Swaying Purple

If you've driven by 318 Roast Meat Hill Road in Killingworth lately, you've probably noticed a flurry of activity-and more than a hint of purple peppering the grounds. Once used to farm cattle, the 25 acres are now home to longtime Killingworth residents Chris and Denise Salafia, who are busy re-purposing the property. The self-proclaimed agricultural "greenhorns" hope to make the spot, which they've christened Lavender Pond Farm, a popular agrotourism destination. They've spent the summer planting thousands of lavender plants-6,000 to date, to be exact, with an additional 2,000 ready to go.
