The wintery blast we are having right now has everyone frozen up in the sugaring world. But that will hopefully work towards more normal early spring temperatures soon so we can get back to gathering sap after this coming week. Next Saturday only we will offer sugar-on-snow from 12 to 4pm for those who want to stop by.
Brian has a new friend supervising the sap gathering this year. This ruffed grouse was hand raised and now living free in his own territory at one of the gathering spots. He checks things out following along as Brian goes from tree to tree in “his domain”. As soon as Brian crosses that invisible boundary though he doesn’t follow.
