It's just about that time again. Time to tap the maple trees and start gathering sap for syrup. And syrup means SPRING.
Spring is good. So is homegrown, home made, maple syrup. We finished our last bit this week and there was much sadness in Mudville.
Our old blue sap bags wore out last year and we moved to a tube and bucket system. Behind the bag in the pic, you can see what I'm talking about. That's what we'll be putting in in the next day or so. I'll try to get some pics of how exactly this works.
