Tree Farm Socks

I had a “lemonade from lemons” moment last week while driving my youngest to and from school. Her car is in the shop after the accident. This drive is significant, about 45 minutes each way. I noticed a sign for a tree farm I had never seen before. On the third driving day, I finally spotted the tree farm on the way home. It’s so cheery. We opted for an artificial tree this year for the first time. I miss the trip to pick out a tree. Do you think the tree farm would mind if we came in and walked around for a bit? Maybe they have swags for sale? I will let you know if I am able to visit the tree farm. Tree Farm Socks (Ravelry link)

    1. We drove by today and checked out the tree farm. There was a sign that said, “Grab a saw and cut your tree. I’ll be back in 20 minutes.” We did see that they sell firewood, so we’re thinking about going back for that and a walk around.

  1. I’m sure they’d love you to visit with the trees:)
    We went with an artificial tree about 5 or 7 years ago once we realized that a live tree in December meant sinus infections for the allergic in January:( I miss the mess but not the work.

  2. I’m sure wandering around won’t be a problem. And they will very possibly have swags or other loose branches around 🙂 When I was a kid, our family would pick a Christmas tree in the fall and dig it up. Then it would live in a tub in our living room all winter and get decorated for the holiday. Then in spring we would plant it in the yard. It was a very slow way to create a windbreak in one corner. Also, we had a sort of graduated row of pines in that one area, though it would also be possible to create a more natural looking grouping 🙂
