Tuesday was the last boil of the maple syrup season.
We boiled 55 gallons of sap and produced a little over a gallon.
Sap at the beginning of the season is sweet & clear and as the season progresses,
it becomes less sweet and more watery.
Therefore, it takes more sap and a longer boil to produce a gallon of syrup.
The early syrup, Light Amber, is lighter, sweeter and has a more delicate maple taste.
The latest product, Dark Amber, is thicker, more robust and has a definite maple taste.
Both are delicious!

The weather is breaking.
I walked over to the neighboring cattle farm and visited the cows.
Of course, they saw me coming.
I love reading their eartags.
Afte deciding I was harmless, they ignored me.
Spring is in the air
And the calves are sparring.
This little guy thinks he's tough.
She lets him win, this time.
