Firing up!

12:00 noon Scott's heading down to the sugar camp shortly to start boiling.  

 

Christopher Howse is firing for him today - yay!

 

Turns out that the three guys Scott's relying on for firing this spring ALL have pregnant partners who are expecting to deliver sometime within the next 4 to 6 weeks.  This will certainly be a productive spring!  Maybe they'll all come on the "sugar moon"...

 

Scott's starting with a full tank of sap and then it's supposed to get pretty warm and rainy this afternoon so potentially the trees will open up.  Could be a boil into the early hours, until the rain turns to snow and the trees shut down.  Then tomorrow is cold again so it should be quiet.

 

We've made about 10% of an average crop so far.  Thinking of all those producers who still aren't tapped in yet and hoping it goes smoothly for them.  This is such an early season.  

 

We're doing a lot of "maple magic" packages this year - a reserved all-inclusive package during the week.  Very fun, cause those folks are booking an over-the-top brunch, guided tour and sugar on snow by reservation.  It means that during March Break folks are booking Tuesday thru Friday.  Staff limitations/availability will determine whether we can also take drop-ins.

 

Samara's on day #6 on the couch and is finally close to well.  Happy spring!
