Sugaring 2013 – Slow Week

Well as you can see from the picture above things have been cold here. Most of the lines have been frozen solid. The weather today did poke above freezing for a bit, but not long enough to get the sap rolling.

We did go and check the buckets all last weekend and you can see we had quite a bit of snow melt until our most recent storm yesterday. Unfortunately the buckets were dry!

I have been slowly taking our couple of gallons of maple sap concentrate and reducing it to almost syrup on the stove. I am down to about three gallons of very sweet almost syrup. Possibly bottling some more maple syrup either the end of the week or this weekend.

The kids have been having a blast on all the snow bridges and breaking the creek ice, however that has all changed with yesterday’s snow. Hopefully it will stick around until this weekend.
