We’ve been busy as bees recently, not making honey, making maple syrup. The sugaring season has been GREAT this year, which is really nice, but it’s keeping us far too busy. We’ve been up late every night gathering sap and we’re up early the next morning to spend our day boiling it down. At least I can check on it while I’m working since I work from home. The lack of sleep is starting to catch up with me, but the late nights and early mornings are well worth the sweet reward. So far we’ve collected 137 gallons of sap and have over 3 gallons of finished syrup.
We’ve been enjoying sourdough pancakes every morning for breakfast with freshly made syrup, you sure can’t beat that! That being said, I’m tired. I need a little of this.
It doesn’t look like that will come until late next week, the weather forecast looks like sugaring will be in our future all next week and maybe into the next.
