Boiling



Today I had irons in a couple of fires. I finished setting up the sugaring arch, fired it up, and tended it all throughout the day. Meanwhile I was in the house trying to make headway with insulating the basement.

The day went well, and as I write at almost 10:00pm we're still boiling away, though we've stopped feeding the fire. I'll tend it for a while longer and then fill the pan as full as I can with cold sap and it'll simmer overnight. We'll fire it up again in the morning

I love sugaring. Love it.
