What we did this winter...

Our blogging has taken a back seat to life...but we would like you to see what we spent our winter months doing...we were busy!  We tended many fires...daily...sometimes all day! and into the night!!!
 The steam was amazing...we worried the neighbors would think we were burning the place down....it was only steam though...no smoke...promise!
 Our friend and neighbor Pam helped us out on more than one occasion....here she is testing the sugar density of the syrup with the hydrometer.
 Our new sugar shack...built into a corner of our pole barn.  We look forward to the evolution of this new enterprise.
 And of course the end product is very good, very sweet and leaves you wanting more.  We hope to be crafting a CSA sugar share for the future!
