    Default Didn't Sugar In 2019 .. Or Did We??

    Last spring ( 2019) we was not able to sugar as I had a medical issue …
    My grandson came and pickup 10 buckets, covers and taps in mid March ….
    Said he was going to tap a few trees around his yard in Barrington, NH …
    At Christmas I received three small containers of light colored syrup he had made … see below >
    Also a card which read: "The Year that almost wasn't … 2019"
    So I guess he kept the tradition going … maybe not here …. but at another location …
    THANK YOU Nathan!!!!

    Hi Dave, It's good to see that you are healed and ready to make some syrup. I hope that you have a good season. How's Jim doing this year. I know that he had his problem the year before you did and was back last season.
