Our friends with the ducks and chicks turned their forest into a syrup-making business and WOW is it ever good stuff! I took a few photos of the equipment for you guys. :)
(More under the cut...)
The drive in to their place...! So lovely. Love that Canadian flag! ^-^
I can't believe what a buttload of work making syrup is! Did you know it's forty to one? So when he gets forty litres of syrup that turns into ONE litre after processing. People think it's expensive but they don't realize the amount of hard work that goes in to it. They've got just under a thousand trees tapped!
Lots of black walnut trees in there, pondhopper! I thought of you right away. ^-^
It was a lovely day and walking their woods was really good exercise (I totally pulled something *LOL* must remember to start stretching before ANY activity...) and I'm looking forward to seeing them again soon! Oh, their names are Chris and Melissa, by the way. :)
It's Tuesday! It's freezing o_O (it's "only" -16C but I'm telling you it feels way colder...stuff to do with dew points and dryness and other things I don't understand) so I'm going to hang out here with you guys for another coffee and then pick a room and just attack it. *snaps on rubber gloves*
Love and light to all ♥
