Pictures of the Season – Part Two

Continuing with the seasonal pictures, we’re still in the barn because part of our entrepreneurial program for teens is hosting a fairly large public maple syrup festival. During the festival (and all the time, for that matter) the public is invited to visit the barn and one of the teenagers participating in the

program will give them a quick tour and answer questions. Here we have

some teens getting familiar with the barn inhabitants.

Below we have some Tapping Sweet Success participants again. Teamwork is the order of the day. We were getting the sap evaporator ready to boil and create that

sweetest of spring treats: maple syrup.

The day turned quite warm by mid afternoon and everyone was glad to peel away some of the winter clothes.

Anyone need a quick drink between trees? As John drilled and I inserted spiles and hung buckets, Shea tested the sap to make sure it passed muster.img_1720.jpg
