Sugaring Season

Sugaring Season

A magical process,
Highly underrated,
No doubt not completely understood,
Whereby humans interact with trees to harvest that
Delightful, Delicate, Delicious
Elixir.

Nothing like the real thing,
Full of trace nutrients
Chosen by the wise Sugar Maples.

Freezing weather required (done :<{},
then March days
above freezing.

So many factors coalesce
To make that sweet spring treat.

Seeing signs for Sugar houses open in Vermont.
Sap gathering,
Boiling,
Sugar on snow,
A magical time.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Meg


Fall maples

Maple sap,
Go ahead, drink it like the  old people did.
Watch the quantity...moderation.
Never steal sap,
Don't be a Sap Jacker!

Sap buckets on maples
Roads beginning to thaw.
