Here's our 'sugar house' as we call it....
It has progressed over the years from an open
flame surrounded by cinder blocks and a
roasting pan to a reworked 250 gallon drum with
an actual finishing pan on top!
You can see Toby, our trusty yellow lab watching.
He likes to sit half way between the sugar house and
our house, this way he can 'properly greet' anyone
who shows up in either location and
not miss ANY ACTION!
|Ethan our nephew, had come over to help hang the |
buckets and he came back to help empty them!
He had an eye opening experience as to all the work
involved in making maple syrup!
He was a trooper and everyone had fun
showing him the ropes! Yeah Ethan!
Lots of work, but oh the sweet reward!
