April 23: The Crop Is In

"Alright. That's 2013 right there," said Jake at 5:15 p.m. as he dumped the final pail of syrup into the filter tub. Phew. I know you readers must be as relieved as I am. April 23. Day 23. Come September when I mention to a visitor that we made this year's crop of syrup in twenty-three days it will sound, even to me, like nothing. "But," I'll add after a jerk of memory, "we were sure glad it didn't go a day longer."

Woods cleanup begins tomorrow at 8:00 a.m.

Season stats later this week....
