We've had maple syrup in storage for a week and today was the boil off day.

Early this morning we started the process.

About noon Dereck and  Jacquie arrived to photograph our house. They are a lovely couple and we had a great time showing them around and getting to know them.

Jim and Pierrette dropped by to see how our boiling was progressing. They live just down the road and have tapped trees for sap this year. We share ideas and stories about our maple syrup production.

It was cold but sunny so we bundled up and enjoyed the time around the evaporator.

Carol and Don made sure the boil pans were kept stocked and Mary checked the level of sap in the final pan to make sure we didn't boil over and burn the pan.

By five o'clock we were bottling the syrup. Carol made sure nothing got spilled.

Now it's time to relax, have supper and watch a movie.

Thanks for stopping by and keeping an eye on us.
