10:35 Sunday Another good day. Boiled off a tank of sap. Made darker syrup but still mid-season flavour. Cleaned up all the sap.
A pleasure to have Bob here again! Answered some questions about sap and remembered checking the sugar content of individual trees on the farm, comparing year to year.
Tonight is supposed to be minus 14. Light snow on the ground. The next couple of days will be cold, with more snow expected on Tuesday. No sap will come until it warms up again. Sounds like maybe Thursday. The rain should bring sap.
Lots of happy visitors from all over - Australia, Ireland, Philippines, Brazil...and then Rawdon Hills, Cape Breton, Moncton, Halifax and more. Tours, sugar-on-snow. Even Samara pitched in and was welcoming visitors. Great day all around!
