And life goes on...

Yes I know the world is falling apart at the moment...
Yes I do believe that it will get better...
Yes I realize that it's terrible and horrible...
No I'm not going to talk about it on my blog...
I hope to make this a happy place...
I actually didn't turn on the news tonight.
A first for me. 

This year we decided to try our hand at tapping the trees again. 
We've had great success and every time we
decide that we're taking the taps out we get
there and there's full buckets of sap!

It's amazing how it just looks like water

I'm not sure how much syrup  we've done so far but
obviously after our trip to the woods today
it's not done. 
So far I think we've made around 30 litres.
That's a lot of sap!
In case you're  wondering the ratio is

one drop at a time.

Dave also made himself a sap boiler out of an old furnace.
A lot more financially feasible than
the propane we were using last year.
We also had a sap pan made out of
stainless steel which wasn't cheap.

But we've almost paid for it with the syrup we have sold so far.

Gotta get it hot!
 That's it for now. 
Have a Blessed Day
