family homesteading and off the grid blog hop

homesteadingLooking at the forecast for the next two weeks, we're looking at above freezing temps in the 40s during the day, and just below freezing at night. Around here, that means maple syrup time.

Yesterday, we stopped by the hardware store and picked up four more buckets and taps.

With a couple more trees in the mix, we can gather a bit quicker and maybe, just maybe, put up a couple extra jars of syrup. Last year we put up two quarts. Not a lot, but just enough for us.

When all is said and done, we're not adding protein or anything of real nutritional value with the syrup. But, we sure are adding some flavor, and by doing it ourselves, it's all the more sweet.

This week's featured blog post is from Suzan over at It's My Sustainable Life. We all find that with a little extra effort, we could start to save and keep our seeds from season to season. Suzan shows us how easy it is, and how simple keeping them organized is.

Thanks for your submission!
