The long: Delco's fave farm-tainment complex still has Douglas and Canadian firs for DIY cutting. (Also there: wreaths, poinsettias, ornaments, lights, cocoa and Christmas dinner.)

The short: You need a lotta Christmas, right this very minute.

The deal: Get there by 4 p.m. tomorrow, hop aboard a tractor-drawn hayride, grab a bow saw and fell yourself a $59.99 tannenbaum. (Sorry, no last-minute sales.)

Even quicker: Dozens of precut trees are also yours for the choosing.

Stocking stuff: Toy cars, paper dolls, knickknacks galore.

Today: The season's last story time and craft hour is at 10 a.m., free.

Snacks: Grilled cheeses, hot dogs, apple cider doughnuts and cocoa sold from the Garden Center's walk-up cafe. At the market, it's orchard-grown apples, plus pies, mixes and hors d'oeuvres galore.

The basics: 137 W. Knowlton Road, Media, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. through tomorrow (farm market 9 a.m.-6 p.m. through tomorrow, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday), 610-876-7116,
