News For Port Loring
Warmer temperatures will stay with us for another week or so with plenty of sunshine. Sap is running but slowed down some yesterday, with no sunshine. Should pick up today later on when the sun makes her appearance. I tapped twenty trees this year, not to many compared to most, but enough to fill our needs. Just one more thing folks could do if they happen to have a few maples around their home. Nice thing about it, the syrup is good for ya, not like white sugar and corn syrup which is deadly. So….guess I will head on out to check my sap buckets, see if any run through the night and then get to boiling it down. Sure nice to be out and about let me tell ya. Have a great day my friends.
