This is New Jersey: Christmas Tree Hunting

Is it now close enough to Christmas day to buy a real tree and not have it turn to dust by Christmas morning? I guess so because I saw them strapped to cars wherever I roamed today. I have to admit, I buy a real tree every year, but I have yet to go the cutting it down myself route.  After reading Angeline’s blog post, it sounds like a lot of family fun.  If this is something you’d like to try, Edible Jersey has a very extensive list of Cut-Your-Own Farms here.

If you have a favorite farm, we’d love to hear about it. Just leave a comment below. For more information about the Hidden Pond Tree Farm, check out Macaroni Kid’s write up on their recent visit.
