Sugar Season




Our sugaring season is over.  This year, we were better prepared, with better supplies, so while it still took a lot of time and effort, the process did get smoother!  I suspect, and hope, it will get easier and more efficient every year.


We only tapped half of the trees this year and still got way more syrup than we did last year since we were better prepared to handle the volume.  It takes so much time and effort that this stuff is like liquid gold and so wasting any of it is heartbreaking!



Bryce made improvements to his "sugar stack" with plans of rebuilding it next year.  


Also, we went all official and made labels for our syrup.  It was a family effort as I came up with the concept, Bryce drew it and Grace lettered it (watched from afar :)).  While certainly not anything fancy I think it's simplicity has a certain charm.  I included the date and batch number at the bottom.

  2. Do you sell your syrup? You don't have an online store, right?

    1. We don't sell our syrup as of now but who knows in future years! We don't currently have an online store but will be opening one soon- hopefully late spring/early summer!

    1. I would love that and it would totally fit with our focus on flowers in the store. I wonder what one has to do in order to be able to sell food? Thanks for the suggestion!
