How are you all doing? Sugaring is in full force up here on the ridge in Southwest Wisconsin, we are also now hunkering down now that the Coronavirus has made it's appearance here in the United States. We are well stocked here and just planning to stay put for awhile. Nope we didn't go crazy with the toilet paper, we are good on that.
You could almost say this was mud season as well as sugaring season (LOL) but last night we got some snow after most if not all of our snow had melted, not sure if we can call it a sugar snow. We have gotten some really good syrup so far though and we are quite happy about that.
St Patrick's day came and since the bars and restaurants in Wisconsin are closed and only doing take out (by the way we don't have too many restaurants to choose from near us anyway) so I decided to make corned beef and cabbage at home instead of not doing it.
I hope you all are staying home and healthy. It seems our lives for what we once knew may be forever changed.
