On returning home we noticed the maple syrup operation next door was up and running. I really wanted to take a look but wanted to be invited not just drop in. So we headed back to the house to get started on our gate we wanted to put up in the drive. We logged out 3 cedar trees and used the tops of these for two posts which we did get set today.
|Isn't that pretty wood??|
|Letting the posts set up...poured concrete dry mix in the holes so they will stay still...Monday a gate will go in.|
And so it happened while setting the posts the neighbors showed up and invited us down to see their maple syrup operation. Yeah!
|5 gal buckets collecting what looks like water(sap) out of the trees|
|They pour it into the cheesecloth material atop this 250 gal vat which us on top of a large fire pit to cook it off|
|Gently cooking it down until it becomes the color and thickness they are looking for|
|Here is some of the finished product|
Welcome A Lonely Heart to my page! Look forward to seeing ya more....
