Today we went out looking for our Christmas tree. Traditionally we go out a week after Thanksgiving and usually it is cold and sometimes snowy but today was a balmy 60 degrees.
I alway make a point to shop local farms for product and today was no exception. We found a tree farm several years ago not too far from home with in about half drive. Although it was raining on the way here, it seamed to let up just in time to go out and take a hike looking for a tree.
It is such a great experience to go out and look for a tree and once you find that special tree, personally cutting it down. This guarantees that it is fresh and will last awhile in the house.
I got to say that this farm always is well taken care of and always has plenty of trees so it usually does not take long before we find one that we like. It is a no frill kind of place but who needs frills. You are there to pick out a tree.
Did you shop and support your local tree farm for a Christmas tree this year?
