Hubby collected the sap three days and stored the tank in the garage to keep it chilled. He and our friend from Giles county worked on it from 10:30 Friday morning until 12:30 that night and started again at 6:30 on Saturday morning.
Several of the neighbors came to visit and watch the creation and some friends from Blacksburg came on Saturday afternoon but not in time to watch the procedure. They were fascinated with the results and the education they received about Mother Nature and maple syrup.
I’ve decided to complete this post with the pictures I have of the event which my daughter took. I was under the weather and banned to the house and a very special friend stayed in with me so we could catch up while I filtered the syrup and canned it. All in all, everyone had a good time and there were lots of smiles throughout the day!
