My mind is abuzz with questions about how the bizarrely mild weather so far this winter is going to affect the sap flow. If we don’t get a very deep freeze the season will likely be very short indeed. A recent trip to Montreal’s Dominion and Grimm warehouse has me enchanted with the amount of specialty equipment there is. I reigned in the urge to splurge on all the spiffy equipment and gadgets that appeared essential to have. If everything goes according to plan this year, I’ll add 20-30 more taps if I can. More on that later.
In other news, my excitement about beekeeping is mounting as I put together my order for equipment and hives. I’ve been in touch with a man I can order my bees from too. Oooohh I can’t wait until the spring!
