Maple Sap

I boil sap all day every day. I finish off sap in the house into the night. I have every pot I own filled with sap that is somewhere in the continum between thick enough to bring into the house and ready to be canned.

Yesterday I boiled as hard as I could and I barely made a dent in what needs to be boiled.

I have burned through our wood pile but the house isn’t cold at night, just fogged up with hot sticky sap boiling off . I am now burning old boards more ready for the compost pile than my evaporator. Soon I will be collecting logs from the side of the road to stoke my fire. Because this year….. the sap keeps on coming.
And coming.

And coming.

And some people are getting rather tired of sap.
