Scott came home at 1 am this morning. They left a full tank and a half and the sap still running. Today though the temperature's supposed to drop by late afternoon. The sap will stop. And then it'll be a waiting game again and the next few days are going to be super cold.
All went reasonably smoothly last night. There are always a couple of glitches at the start of the season...like a malfunctioning thermometer, things like that. The syrup is awesome. Took a little more time due to the sap being a bit lower in sugar content.
Scott was interviewed for CBC Information Morning this morning - should air tomorrow. Just looking for a season update.
Truro Daily News did a sweet little article about us on Shrove Tuesday that includes the recipe for our award-winning buttermilk pancakes. Check it out!
For me (Quita) it's the usual activities: schools are now clamouring to book their field trips - should be a full, fun season! Lining up staff for the busy March Break. Making sure we have supplies coming in.
Will check in later after the boil's done!
