Usually we go out to the sugarbush 3 times a day for the sap. It got really tiring for Jim to carry the two 5 gallon buckets up and down the hills, so he devised something from the past.
After the jugs and buckets are emptied into the 5 gallon buckets, they get hauled up hill to be dumped into the holding tank.
Sometimes we have to make two trips and Jim will have to come back down to fill the buckets up again. We'll do this everyday until the sap stops running.
We'll be boiling again this weekend, our son Joshua and his family are heading here and Lauren and Erin are heading her as well from Minnesota. It should be a fun and busy weekend.
To see more of our maple sugaring go HERE.
I'm linking again with Amy over at Verde Farm for Farm Friend Friday.
