Well,
We had to address the situation of the ice in the buckets. They had about 1-2 gals., in them. Half ice that we dump on the ground and the sap, which we collected. Takes a lot of time dealing with the ice, which is worthless, but we are headed back to the low teens again Thursday after another round of heavy snow Wed.
We fired one evaporator today, and got the Saphouse in order. Going to fire the big evaporator tomarrow and make sure it is ready for the "RUN" if we get one, and empty the storage tanks so they dont freeze up and split a seam.
Thursday will be real touch and go, because we can't drain the evaporators, to prevent freezing, so we may need to light small maintainance fires in them, to keep the semi syrup from splitting the evaporator pans wide open.

I sure love your syrup, and after all your struggles this year with Mother Nature, I admire your fight.

I think I need to convince Momma that we need to take a trip up to maple syrup country some time during sugaring season. Country looks great and I think it would be interesting as heck to see/experience that. You allow women in the saphouse?? She is a southern city girl and not used to these things. (<;

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
