Jake and the crew, navigating the mud

 

March 31, 2013

Holy cow what a week! Monday it was so cold we thought it was December. We worked all that day in the cold. Yesterday the snow was gone and mud was the order of the day. Jake, our gathering crew of friends and family and the horses, all had to navigate the mud.

I have been in the sugarhouse pretty much steady since last Wednesday. I even boild today, Easter Sunday, sharing the experience with family and friends. It has been a long, yet wonderful week. Syrup is still a nice color, no buds in sight and this is the longest season that I can ever remember!

Tomorrow looks to be another good day for the sap, then the cold will return. The cold front will extend the season a little longer. I am sure the mud will remain, but the moisture is good for the trees. The horses don’t get stuck and except for an occasional lost boot or shoe along with a muddy sock…all is well 😮
