proof that silver maples can be tapped....
...and believe me, it is JUST as yummy as any old sugar maple tree sap!
sitting in my kitchen are 2 cups of maple syrup boiled down from tree sap (it takes 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup). this is my first attempt at tapping our trees and i'm quite pleased so far.
also, our doe kidded last week and is freshened!!! i have missed our fresh milk so this is a joyous day indeed.
