The annual Maple Syrup Sunday adventure happened this past weekend. We went to Nash Valley Farm this year - same as last year.
Lots of syrup to choose from. We bought a gallon (!) of dark amber. I like the darker variety because it has a more distinct flavor.
I took a couple of pictures of their cows and this one looked so much like it is about to tell a joke that I had to give it one. Corny, I know.
The highlight of the day being the consumption of massive amounts of maple cotton candy.

They were boiling the sap in the sugar shack - it smelled so good. It was like a sugar sauna.
Enjoying ice cream with Grammie. Needless to say there certainly was enough sugar had by all. I wouldn't mind tapping some trees someday but I don't think we would get much from the small ones in our little patch of woods. It might be fun to give it a try though.
