If you look closely you can see the sap running down the bark. CB helping his Dad drill some holes in the maple trees.
Couldn’t help but take a picture of this. CB’s friend got his outdoor gear wet so we supplied him with a stylin’ attire. Camo overalls and my flowered bog boots. LOL. I have been sworn to secrecy so I will never tell which friend it was!
Last night was cool and today was a beautiful day filled with sunshine.
I’m sure the buckets are filling right up.
Tonight we will begin the boiling down process on top of the wood stove. This weekend we may boil some down over an open fire. The wood stove is our preferred lazy-man method. But, there truly is nothing like the taste of maple syrup boiled down over a fire.
