Earlier in the week we had finished out our maple taping season,† with 32oz of syrup.† Well i didnt like the final product so we did some more boiling down on it today. And now we are finished with our 2nd season of maple tapping done. Looks like i was able to boil it down by another 1/2. So we finished with 16oz of syrup. We had 24 taps, but there are certian maples that you shouldn't waste your time tapping.† Like silver maples, but i am still learning the identification of a few of the sub species of maples.† But next year we will be adding more taps. If you look closely at the tap, i got a pic of the sap dripping out, but it froze. One day i hope to have enough syrup to do a few trades and barter.

yesterday  may 9th, we received  a huge snow storm. We got almost 10 inches,  flock isnt happy, but the dogs are. I forgot about it, and need to unbury my sled, and some tools to go cut firewood. But within a week, the snow should be melted.

I have plenty of ash staves. Throw a bow building camp out. The staves have been drying since last year, and most are straight. Each stave can produce 2-3 bows each.
