Renos and Rubber

Got a bit of late start today, but still managed to get 50 trees tapped (108 total now) with Denis.  Joes spent most of the day cleaning up and installing the new pvc floor mat that got delivered.. what a difference, place feels bigger and warmer. Joes a perfectionist so it fit perfect!

Now with that done comes more tapping and cleaning and getting the stoves and vats ready.  Still at least a couple of weeks before the trees will run.

Last year it was March 30th before it started.  Looks like a long slow thaw as well this week…

Monique and I brought a bbq up and had our first dinner there.  Going to see hoe the new stove cooks crepes pretty soon as well!!
