Steam rises at Riceland Meadows

Steam rises at Riceland Meadows

March 23, 2013

Wow, what a difference a year makes! This time last year, we were done with maple syrup and starting to plow and prep the fields for planting. We got some oats in early and the growing season was off to a good start. Today the high might make 32, but we are more like winter than spring.

The sap is doing that thing where it drips on the trees in the sun, just enough to freeze up by nightfall, leaving a big ice cube where sap should be. We are waiting on Mother Nature, she is the one in control!

Snow covers the muddy ground about 6 inches deep. The sun is out and the little lambs think it’s a great day for playing out of doors. We did a bunch of chores, cleaned manure and even made plans for a clean up job in the basement … man I am getting desperate here 😮 I would much rather be in the sugarbush!
