With the 2016 Maple Syrup season complete we finally have a chance to catch up on our almost forgotten website …
The syrup season began early and we expected it to end quickly because of the above average temperatures all winter. But March cooled off a little and things slowed down until the end of the month when the sap started to flow like a river! We heard someone call it a “sap tsunami” and that is the best description. We were unable to keep up with the volume despite spending 48 hours at the evaporator non stop. We now have a good supply of maple syrup to take us into 2017.
This spring has been usually cool and dry so our wild edibles are coming up slowly. We do have Wild Leeks at this time and will soon be looking for Fiddleheads, Dandelions, Violets, Clover, Alfalfal and Wild Carrot.
