Welcome to the second week of the March 2020 blog hop called "You're the Star"!

This past weekend, we collected sap and moved a few buckets around that weren't producing that well. Boy, did that make a difference. Sammy tapped into a big sugar maple down near the marsh, and when he did, it was like a faucet had been turned on. I've never seen a tree let loose that much sap before.

Our boil is on, and I'm home today to finish up this batch and complete some client orders in the workshop afterwards. I can't multi-task that much, as the sap needs constant monitoring, but once it's bottled up, we can re-set for the next batch in a couple days.

Lots going on around here, and with the warmer weather flowing in with the wind, there will be a lot more to come.

Cheers, and best wished for a smooth spring!
