Here’s what we suggest to help keep your tree healthy through the New Year:
Before you put your tree in its stand cut off at least 1/4″ to remove any sap build-up
Use a tree stand that holds at least a gallon of water – refill it daily – don’t allow the water to drop below the bottom of the trunk (otherwise a sap plug will form and the tree won’t be able to drink any more water.
Keep your tree away from heat sources
We have big and small wreathes –
How about one
We have Fraser Firs. They have short, dark-green needles which are silver-ish on the bottom side.
Canaan Firs have slightly longer and softer needles
Balsam Firs are considered to be the most fragrant tree.
We also have trees with long needles, the White Pine and the Scotch Pine
Today is November 25…. so we’re a little behind with the blog but it is officially Christams season!
We have a lot more information and pictures of Christmas trees coming.
Here’s the nitty gritty:
Beginning Friday November 23rd (the day after Thanksgiving) we are officially open for Christmas Trees!!
We will have the following types of trees:
We will have a wide variety of shapes and sizes – come early because the trees really do move fast!
We will also have wreaths again this year in 8″, 24″, 30″, 36″, 48″, and 60″ diameters.
More information about each type of tree and proper tree care will follow soon – with plenty of pictures. Let us know if you have any questions – check back soon for more details!
We use it as decoration, either in a tall vase or hung upside-down on the wall. It is typically grown for all different uses – mainly for bird seed.
Mother nature sure took care of us this weekend – 70 and sunny in the middle of October – it doesn’t get any better than that!
Too bad we can’t say the same about today – I guess we don’t want to get too spoiled 😉
This time of year we are busy doing more than just playing with the pumpkins. It is also harvest time! Right now we are harvesting soybeans. To do this we drive the combine (the big green machine in the picture) through the soybean field. The combine cuts the entire soybean plant, it rips the beans from the stalks, stores the beans in the comine and spits the wasted stalks out the back of the combine – back onto the field. When the combine is full the beans are emptied into the big red truck and hauled to the bin. These soybeans are primarily used as a source of protein in animal feeds.
Just wanted to share a few quick shots of a couple scarecrows. We have a ton of scarecrows hanging out around the farm – we’ll have to share more later.
Hayrides to the pumpkin patch THIS WEEKEND…
Saturday October 20 and Sunday October 21
