Greetings from the Ivanhoe Christmas Tree Farm,
The trees look what bwe have left look good this year.
Draught from the last 4 years have put us close to the end. Fortunately we
had planted several years back some BLUE ICE and Carolina Saphire trees
that did pretty well during the dry years. Now this year we did not plant any
more Virginia Pines. Should've. All the rain we got would have really made them
do well. We still have all sizes from 3 to over 10 feet. In addition to
the trees, we will be selling a few ICTF Humming Bird Feeders until we have sold
out. The blue grass players will return the first Saturday in December, weather
permitting. Weíre looking forward to this, and they are scheduled to
appear at Joan Keltonís Bonham Jamboree on that Friday night.
Picking in the shop will depend a lot on the weather. If itís too cold, you
just canít play. Our hours this year will be Thanksgiving afternoon until dark,
then every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from 10 a.m. until dark. If these
hours arenít convenient, call, and weíll be glad to set up an appointment with
Wayne Denninger will handle concessions and some of his
crafts again this year..
The bonfire will be burning and the cider hot. We are
happy that many of you return and allow us to be part of your Christmas
tradition. For those of you who havenít visited our choose and cut farm, this
is where you can get a truly fresh, Texas grown Christmas tree, and have a good time doing it.
Ivan and Susie
