February 20, 2011 – Let the Boil Begin!

The week in the 50’s and 60’s that melted all the snow, also started the maple sap running.

Here Martin checks out the new old stove, one that we borrowed from the good folks at Morning Sun Farm, who upgraded to an even bigger stove. This one works much faster than last year’s model.

Just look at that cloud of evaporation as the sap boils away.  In addition to tapping the trees, Martin has been excited about chopping wood – he puts the wood up on the chopping block and stacks it.  It’s been a good team this spring!
