Looks like it time to get going!!
Messed around at the sugar shack yesterday, Joe and I got the roof shoveled off and Monique and Jamie Moved the equipment outside. On this years improvement list is a better floor in the shack and its looking more and more like a new woodstove for heating cooking is gonna be on the list as well.. The old one which was my grand mothers is at least 50 years old and I am afraid that its rotten on the bottom and in the back. Repair would be too costly so I’m looking for alternatives.
Lat year I thing we had 350 spiles in and this year there’s two spots we didn’t tap. So I think we are gonna shoot for 450 taps.
About half as much snow in the bush as last year so tapping should be easier and maybe the run will start sooner so we better be ready for it!
Time to get organized!!
Looks like we got a couple of weeks at least till we get collecting!!
- A good run, with a heavy heart.
- I get by with a little help from my friends.
