It's Maple Syrup Time!

The headline at HamWeather is "Winter's Thaw." It is supposed to be above freezing during the day and below freezing at night for the next week or so. Time to tap the trees for maple syrup! Buckets are all washed out and ready to go outside...

Last year we only tapped 3 trees. We got a bit of maple syrup and it was delicious! This year we wanted to tap many more, but the snow is putting a damper on our efforts. The snow is too deep and we just do not have the equipment we need to get to the trees this year (like a snowmobile!). So, we have tapped 6 trees today and hopefully we will tap a few more in the next few days.
