It's that time!

We have tapped a few of the maples in our yard and are getting sap.  It's so much fun to crunch through the snow with our little buckets and collect it.  I love this time of year when you can smell the fresh earth but yet it's still mostly covered in snow.  My husband Jeff, took a metal barrel and added feet for balance, a stove pipe and a door.  This way we will be able to regulate the heat better and boil a few pans of sap at a time.  Since moving to this property 3 years ago, we have always enjoyed Maple Syrup Time!  Can't wait to get some on our pancakes!
