Maple Sugarin' Time

Its that time again!
Time to make maple syrup.

 We tried something new this year, sealed buckets with tubing.
We've had ants get into the sap in the past.
This works great, no ants!

 The hardest part!

Boiling the sap on the trusty evaporator.
We got about 55 gallons of sap this year.

 We do a final boil inside where we can regulate the process.
Then we fill the bottles,

Cap them,

 Clean the sticky off them,

And finally, heat shrink a cover on the cap.

2019 batch is in the books!
