Almost time for sugaring...

After last week's cold snap, everyone was talking about frozen pipes and frozen noses.  But that sort of cold weather reminds us that sugaring season is not too far away from us here in Eastern CT. 

It's just about time to start setting up the evaporator, cleaning out the sap buckets, and locating all those gallon milk jugs that we've been saving all winter.  Below is a photo of my two helpers hard at work during last year's sap run.

The one in the red hat is also known as my "official syrup taster."  In fact, she came out with spoon in hand about 30 minutes after I fired up the evaporator...And to her credit she was able to hang out all day and wait for her chance to "test" the syrup.
