Saturday was a busy day here; everyone helped in bottling the sap.

Paul made sure the filter didn't fall over while Mary poured the sap.

Once filtered it was then poured into the bottles and sealed ready for consumption at some later date.

The maple syrup is delicious this year and nice and dark, just the way we like it on our pancakes.

Minna and Paul keep a close eye on Mary as she fills the bottles.

Today it is -18*C much too cold for the sap to flow. Looks like it will be Wednesday or Thursday before we will be boiling again.

So far next week looks like an excellent week for maple syrup, warm days cold nights, perfect conditions for major sap flow.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your coffee Rebecca.
