What projects are you doing? Maple syrup here.
We tried our hand at making maple syrup this year. LOTs of buckets out and the sap has been flowing for over a week.
We made two batches. The first didn't quite make the official maple syrup temperature, due to an innacurate thermometer, but it still came out ok & will be frozen & used like that. The second batch came out perfect, we bought a new thermometer, and the jars sealed up nice.
The 2nd batch of course we knew a little bit more what to expect, and from about 90 gallons of sap ended up with about 1 1/2 gallons of syrup. More batches to come yet this year, but I'll tell you making the syrup definately helped with the erupting gardening urge that's hitting me right now!
So what projects does everyone have going on?
