Scott started tapping yesterday! Finally temperatures warmed up enough to get to the woods. He doesn't like to tap in colder than minus 5. So far so good...apparently he's 25% done.
There's still lots of snow in the woods - he's on snowshoes. Pretty good conditions though - firm snow and cold. Sure better than last year!
Things are hopping at the restaurant and sugar camp down the hill - we're gearing up with new staff and welcoming back returning ones.
First school booking was this week - the whole Scotsburn Elementary School. 100 children learning about maple, eating pancakes and maple syrup, listening to stories, rolling their own sugar-on-snow and hiking in snowy woods. Lots of the kids had made their own syrup before. Gotta love rural kids!
