Perfect day for boiling sap; sunny, beautiful blue sky and the temperature is around 6*C.

First job this morning was cleaning the boil pans. We use turkey roasters as we are just a hobby operation, making enough for family and ourselves.

Now we are patiently boiling down 115 litres of sap and hoping to end up with two litres of maple syrup. 

If all goes well we should be bottling our syrup by 6 tonight.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the day.

Up-date 3:45 pm

Almost 4 and we are still outside boiling.
