Sapping and chickens

The sap is running strong right now. I have taken a load of sap to Leon's nearly every day. For two days straight we had to check our buckets twice, so not to have them over flow. With the new pan the syrup looks much better...a nice golden brown.

   There are a lot more eggs this week we're needing to find another store to sell to. When of the simple joys of farming is watching the hens peck around the ground, scratching and cackling--what a joy. This year if we can afford it, I think the hen house will be put on wheels. That way they can be moved quicker and further if need be. Our hens are given pasture, we insist they go on pasture even if they fuss.
