...and boiling!

4:00 pm Thursday  Boiled yesterday, Wednesday.  Scott and Christopher fired up at around 1 pm.  Boiled til after supper, left with the sap running a little.


It ran a little over night, and is running really well right now.  We'll probably boil tonight.  Better than boiling in a rainstorm tomorrow!


So far this season we've boiled 7 times and have made about 60% of an average crop. Great, considering we like to boil at least 1/2 by the end of March.  We're right on track.


Pretty cool to have 5 year olds from New Glasgow Academy yesterday - they had such great questions, ate pancakes and maple syrup and went for a romp on the trails. Then the Grade 2's and 3's came today.  Lively, excited group who loved the pancakes.  And then listened extremely well when we stood under the sap tanks so that they could hear the sap running.  We love schools!  Tomorrow it's French Grade 9's!
