I can see it partially out my window. Anyone have details?

It really was an incredible process. But I think you are right, VT syrup is the best! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b69bd00abae74525248cef60c655e9e76c67eaa5c15cd689b6bb76a02eac2691.jpg

Or maybe a drink to get you into the Christmas spirit. If that’s even possible.

A jab at the “organic” crowd? I mean really, organic Christmas trees? I hope the clapboards used on BH frame renovationd are organic. See where one can go with this? For the record, I love Christmas probably more than most here.

When one sees a bit of sarcasm as sociopathy, I think you are the one with the problem. Maybe recent political events have you all in a huff and your persepecive is off. Step back and breathe. Thanks.

But yes, a signature must be present.

Whereas a date doesn’t matter – recipient can choose to accept a post- or ante-dated check or even an undated check, and you can’t stop them if it is signed and otherwise valid.

Because a Treasury Secretary worked there and left in 2002? BTW, it’s not hyphenated. And please try and stick to the Christmas theme we have going here and not be sarcastic, or be admonished.

We got ours there for the first time last year, and it lasted noticeably longer than the ones that we have previously bought at sidewalk pop-ups. I don’t know if they deliver though.

Interesting to hear everyone’s take on this. Some good options in our neighborhood.

It’s a very nice family business, you see the same people year to year, although the grandmother passed away last year ( I learned from a convo with the mother). They still do delivery and I believe employ people from Key Food to do some of the deliveries as well.
We’ve also had lovely trees from the people by St. Ann’s as well though! I would say check out both before making a decision if you can manage it stealthily enough.

Their trees have fragrance and freshness that lasts a good while, if watered. I used to lug it home but the last few years they’ve lugged, and fastened to the base. I tip for that, and hope for the same this year?

I’m not often there so all I can do is speculate. Oh well…mental energy not put to its best use, I feel.
