Last year we discovered Durkee Tree Farm just a few minutes away and got our first truly fresh tree. It’s a shorter drive for us, a less expensive tree and we know it’s fresh since we see it cut right in front of us. We’re even getting better at tying the tree to the car (finally). He’s sitting in the living room now and the furniture has been re-arranged to make room. Decoration will have to wait until the massive pot pie making task has been completed. In the meantime, he smells delightful!
