The Journey of our Christmas Tree Farm

Christmas Tree Farm – Christmas 2021

The Christmas season is upon us! Do you know what that means? Wreath-making season!!! We do not have Christmas trees yet, however, I have been making wreaths and swags for 4 years.

Christmas Wreaths

I had a great time at the Rose Vineyards and Winery for their Holiday Sip and Stroll event.

One of my favorite wreaths this year!

I just love using the rose pine-cones. This wreath was a special order and I absolutely enjoyed making it 🌲

Christmas Tree Farm – Fall 2021

Getting back on track slowly but definitely moving forward with a little help at the Future Christmas Tree Farm!

Ever wonder how quickly the roots form when planting seeds. This was after 1 week of planting the White Dutch Clover. Some leaves had fallen before we planted, the seeds will germinate wherever they fall providing they can get to the soil, in this case, a leaf!!! It’s pretty interesting that the roots are so long so quick about 2” long after 7 days.

We went to check on the white dutch clover the other day and seeded the last of the field over where the shrub garden is going to be. It’s coming up great! I am sure we will need to overseed in the spring but considering when this was planted I am very happy.

When you feel defeated.
As I sit here in my car with the two boys and our windows rolled down, surrounded by 4 foot weeds, as I watch my husband try and get our 1951 John Deere Model B tractor started after sitting for months at our Christmas Tree Farm I begin to feel defeated. I feel defeated for so many reasons both mentally and physically. But I need to pick myself off, brush myself off and get going!!! That is something my Pa Rose would tell me to do and certainly my mother!! Right Mom? So that is what I am doing!

Christmas Tree Farm – Spring 2021

We finally got to start breaking ground this season! From soil tests to tractors and plows, this Christmas Tree Farm isn’t far from being planted!

The first time we saw the property that would become our Christmas Tree Farm! It’s 2.5 acres. The perfect starting point for dreams to come true.
