I wouldn’t have thought with the start we had to winter, 5 inches of snow the day before Thanksgiving, that by the middle of January we would be setting buckets out and preparing for another season of sugaring! But that is exactly what is happening around here. The weather forecast looks just about perfect, so this past weekend we tapped sugar maple trees. Then Monday Eric, Nathaniel, and I went up the mountain to get fire wood for boiling the sugar water down. We are hoping for a great season!
