Maple Syrup Yield!

I think I can spare some for presents! :D

Boilling with the big guns!!!

Those three garbage cans are where we are storing the sap. 
And let the cooking begin!

Do you see the collapse happening?
Next weekend we will move the "arch" to the driveway where it is more stable and less likely to be disturbed by melting snow and ice.

Tapping Trees

We are trying our hands in making maple syrup this year. Of 40 viable trees, we only tapped ten as we were told we would have more than enough!
Dear SP drills the first on a beautiful winter Sunday!
The Rowland's guide us and kindly donated the gear and expertise!
First spile is flowing!
Drip! Drop!
Happy times!
My first drill before I corrected my angle.
Drinking straight from the tree!
Panoramic view of the front fields!
Our youngest sipping sap!
We added a little utility humor for the neighborhood!
