Enjoy this peek at our week!
It’s been a spring like week for the most part, which means our sugaring taps have been flowing with sap. We did have a nice dumping of snow, again, which thankfully melted within 24 hours. I am seriously getting tired of the weather mood swings. We have had spring like weather, flooding, snowing, and now back to spring with a hint of snow in this weeks forecast. Seriously a crazy year this year!
Besides sap, other things have been flowing around the homestead, like eggs from the hens in record numbers and attitude from the country kids. Oh and did I mention Mr. Bill is also trying to get his flow on with the ladies? Ugh, time to go on duck nest watch. It is too early from them to start going broody!
So what made me smile this week?
We are still boiling as sugaring season continues. Did you know it takes around 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup?!?!
We held the last of our 3 part Facebook live fermenting sessions this week. I put all the videos, worksheets, and links on a Fermenting Workshop page on our website for everyone to refer back to, or so folks could join in who might have missed the live events.
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
