Sugaring Season Begins!

When Dave and the girls arrived home from ski practice on Saturday we gathered our lovely new sugar supplies (thanks family for the lovely Christmas gift!) and tapped the trees! We decided that between the glorious weather, that day, seeing the sap buckets up when we were at Drumlin Farm earlier in the week and hearing that Natick Community Organic Farm was getting ready to tap their trees too that all signs were pointing to it "being time". And clearly it was, as we tapped the trees in the evening and by the time we were getting ready to leave for church the next morning we already had two very full buckets of sap! The third tap (which is new this year) is running much more slowly than the other two. Here's to hoping for a wonderful and bountiful sugar season! xo
