A day in the life of a Christmas tree farm

A day in the life of a tree farm - this season started with a lot of rain and mud. Then it snowed, making everything pretty. Now it's raining so it will go back to mud. Then it's supposed to freeze, which will turn everything to ice. Then snow on top of the ice.  We've had everything except sun!
Thank goodness for the Gator - it goes through mud and snow!

 Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree - how much snow is on your branches.  The kids love to see their tree being shaken. It's extra special if a bird nest flies out. The guys doing the shaking aren't too thrilled with snow filled trees. Today it's raining, they will be soaked.
 This was 2 years ago, Santa goes around Oswego Town every year on the fire truck and they stopped at the tree farm to see the kids.


  1. Wow, you certainly do have lots of variety in your day! All we're getting is heat, heat and more heat! I wouldn't mind a little sprinkling of snow ... maybe not great drifts and banks of it though! I can just imagine shovelling loads of snow would not be much fun at all!
