Tapping the Maple Trees

Here is Tim tapping a maple tree with his trusty drill and his safety glasses (never can too safe). In the background is an already tapped maple tree. It's one of our favorite times of year here on the farm, but it goes by so fast and the next thing we know it's spring! It will take 30 to 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup. If you ever have had real syrup right out of the tree you know it's worth every drop!

  2. Yeah! I guess every drop counts in making maple syrup!

    And Tim is very canny with his job. My grandfather, in his younger age was canny as Tim. I remember he always wear Titmus Safety glasses while making my study table. And I love that study table that he made. It is worth keeping like a drop of maple sap.

    My father too is very careful while doing his carpentry like grandpa. He also wears Wiley X prescription lenses on his shooting practice. Shooting is one of his skills and he is definitely good at it.

    Be safe always TIM. Keep up with those safety measures to prevent serious accidents.
