Maple Syrup Update - Day 3

No boiling today... but we had another pretty good haul of sap late in the afternoon.

Got on the scoreboard, as of last night, with one beautiful bottle of the best maple syrup anybody could hope for.

Some anxious moments near the end, as we were afraid of creating another batch of maple sugar. Today we also picked up a candy thermometer.

We'll see if it gets any easier to work that maple magic tomorrow.
