Twain Harte Christmas Tree Farm
Cool Old Sleigh
A walk to the trees....the redwoods were on the right.
We wanted a redwood this year because they stay fresh and green until New Years.
Plus, we needed a tall skinny one to boot!
Way too tall.
A little thin?
Someone's cut from last year with frost.
Not a redwood.
Too tall...too short.
Well, off to another ranch.....
Sierra Glenn Ranch - Sonora
I love this little ranch. We've found very nice trees at this ranch a few years ago.
Way too large...the one next to it was just cut for a city in the bay area.
Look....Santa is at the apple barn. Sierra Glenn has the BEST apples and hot cider.
They also have apple pies and turnovers great for those of us not watching their sugar levels.
We found some Santa Helpers.
This little guy was so precious...love the pup too!
Done deal....now we have to get our cut down the hill....
We found a 12 foot tall skinny tree just to our liking. It was so heavy we needed help getting it down the hill...redwoods are a little heavier. The rancher was having his lunch at the time, but was more than happy to help. Since his little tractor wouldn't start, he brought out the big gun tractor. Okay, this is the tallest tree yet for us, but the deal is that you must cut trees at least 6 foot tall. Plus, the price was the same for a 6 foot tree or a 26 foot tree. So, it's like going to an all you can eat buffet....let's get a big one!
Cutie pie pupster and Santa.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
