Making Sugar at the Bubbling Well Farm

To celebrate winter and warming temps, and just to get outside a bit we sugar during February and March.  By sugar, I mean we make maple syrup from the maple trees on our property. And by “we”  I mean mean and my little helper,  my 8 year old son.  He helps me tap the trees and haul the sap, with only minimal half hearted complaining.  It takes about 70 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup.  After the buckets fill we boil that sap and then spend hours outside surrounded by sweet smelling maple steam.  Its almost heaven on earth.  This year I decided to make a print to go along with the syrup.  Enjoy!
