Running Low On Steam

I may have to face the fact that my 2009 Maple Syrup making is coming to a close. I started pulling taps the other day ~ Amazingly enough the two oldest trees produced the least amount of sap this year (and they didn't produce for very long) so I pulled those taps the other day!

The smaller Black Maple trees I tapped this year are still producing some, though today when I went to collect sap I ONLY got 3 gallons. I notice some budding throughout the yard too. *SIGH* I will likely pull the remaining taps this weekend if I don't do it before then...

On the brighter side, the budding means SPRING is on it's way!!! Time for new gardening projects to begin.
