Tapping Maples

As the snow finally melts, Jamie is fulfilling a lifelong ambition to make his own maple syrup. We've only tapped a few trees, that seems to be the easy bit...then there's the boiling, and boiling and boiling.
However despite all the faff, I've got to admit the end result is very tastey!
We're also finding it a great novelty to be able to see grass again, albeit brown and squashed. However since no more snow on the ground means we might need to start doing some farming, there is a slight panic in the air.
