Sap Gushes on the Weekend

April 1, 2013

What a perfect weekend for syrup making.  The weather made the sap absolutely gush from the trees.  I have not counted the tally sheets yet to see what our sap total was this weekend, or our syrup count, but a rough estimate of syrup puts us at about 50 gallons so far.  It looks like another good week coming up.

We had a full four-day weekend starting on Thursday with the kindergarten field trip.  The kids had a great time making syrup and eating pancakes!

On Friday and Saturday we had many visitors stop by to see the action.  They all had a change to gather sap as the buckets had to be emptied twice a day.  There was also lots of fellowship, fun and food to add to the fun.

Sunday we had our Easter dinner in the cabin so we could keep boiling.  Our lamb made a great aroma with the boiling sap and our dinner was great!  We surely were blessed with an abundance of sap, syrup, family, friends and good things from the LORD this weekend.

I will be sure to post stats soon.  Hope you all had a good Easter weekend!
