The great sugar maple. She sure is lovely. In spring you give me sap and in the fall you give me a beautiful show of colors.
Time to drill the hole. Have to put some muscle into it.
The spoil. It brings the sap from the tree to the bucket ( which by the way can be pretty much anything, I like to use coffee cans because they are not heavy and easy to handle )
Little helpers looking on as it starts to drip in the bucket.
Here is what I cook the syrup in. Just a simple propane burner and stainless pot. Pretty simple.
The sap is a cooking. Soon it will be on yummy pancakes, but we will have to wait since its still cooking. Hope you enjoyed my day in the sugar bush
