OMG OMG OMG! So exciting

I got 9 trees tapped. Yeeehaw!

I will admit it bothered my soul to drill into trees. Think it matters that I hugged them after and said sorry?

Now it's a wee bit cold for the next week but I got a good amount yesterday. So we'll see what I end up with at the end of the season.

I also got a new grill to put over the bonfire to cook it. Now all I need is a caldron and I'll feel witchy!

Great news. I just went down to our local folks and bought 2 bottles. Emergency situation, I'd nearly run out!

The large size deep steam table trays is what many hobbyists, including myself use. They have a large service area and they are relatively cheap.

I know eh? Sheesh! Last year as too mild and I missed the boat. This year I am doing everything I ever wanted on my property because I am so flipping miserable I have to do things that brighten my day, and those 'things' must not inlclude activities that will result in jail time.
