It has been an early sugaring season and quite warm on certain days. We hope for freezing nights and above freezing days because in such weather the sap from our maple trees starts to flow.
For the past few weeks we have been collecting sap from buckets, chopping fire wood and boiling maple syrup in our small sugar house. It has been great to have friends and neighbors stop by and lend a hand and share a story. So far we have 7.5 gallons and are hoping for more.
