It has been above freezing nearly every day and below freezing at night which are the conditions favorable to tapping maple trees for sap. Syrup season is in full swing and I can't wait to taste the results! I dream of salmon on the grill after soaking in a marinade of maple syrup and lemon juice. Yummy!
Not much exciting to report, but it is interesting to watch as people slowly come out of their winter "hibernation" dressed in lighter clothing with their shoulders relaxed instead of hunched up around their necks.
Things are melting on the farm and the horses are shedding buckets of fur which is picked up by the birds to use for nesting material. It is organic and recyclable, so highly desirable building material.This is what it looks like this morning. Still a lot of snow in the woods and around the edges of everything.
