At the beginning of March we had the local 4-H boosters over to tour our small sugar bush operation. Our son and dil and the grands were here to help with sugaring as they do every year and were so kind to stay and help when the 4-H club was here.
We showed them how we did everything from tapping the trees and they could try tapping if they wanted and some did. They all went down into the sugar bush to gather sap and came back to see how the boiling process went. Our son manned the boil so Mr. could be with the 4-H group. We showed them everything, all the way to the bottling of the syrup. Unfortunately I didn't have Mr. take photos of us bottling, nor did I head into the bush to take photos of them gathering, I was manning the boiling inside the house.
The kids and adults seemed to have enjoyed it and they all went home with a sample bottle of syrup and some spiles if they wanted to try tapping some trees at home.
