This time of year, any hint of warmth has us wondering, "is it time yet?"
Friday afternoon, we decided it must be, as it was warm enough to go out without coats.
With great excitement, we headed off to the backyard, drill in hand.
Everyone got a chance to turn the drill.
We were treated to an immediate reward: the sap was running!
Oh, how I love that "drip, drip, drip!"
The next day was frigid, but we'd gotten some new buckets, so we set out again to tap more trees.
Naturally, it's been freezing cold since then, so we haven't begun boiling. But it's coming!
