Here and Gone

The 2011 is gone. It was a very generous season here in CT. I started to tap on Feb 12 and finished in late March mainly because of exhaustion. The season warmed up a bit and shut the trees down but went back to producing sap shortly thereafter.

Along with the syrup, this is my second season making the oh so addicting Maple Coated Pecans and Peanuts and they are simply amazingly delicious.

Below are a few photos of this season.

  Spiles all sterilized and ready to go!

A couple of buckets across the street from my house. I had about 25 tapped out behind the pond.

  Night time boil midweek.

One of several weekend boils.
