Today I’m heading down to the Hardwick Farmers Coop to give a seminar on making maple syrup. It starts at 10:30 am. Joe was planning to come, but as it goes with Mother Nature, you’ve got to make hay when the sun is shining…or in this case, make maple syrup when the sap is flowing!!! I know, I know, it’s ironic that the person who writes and talks about making maple syrup is not really the person who MAKES the maple syrup. I do know a thing or two, though. I’ll give you all I’ve got later today—which is more than enough for successful backyard sugaring.
