What is going on on the homestead.

As you know folks my blog is not just a home cooking blog, although over the colder months cooking is the main focus. Homesteading is slow and there is not much going on outside, the garden is dormant and the animals all cosy in their lodgings.

Home sweet home

This morning was one of those beautiful days when the sun is shining and there is a dusting of snow on the ground.
We have one tentative tap in one of the big old Maples, still a little cold bit it is starting slowly. We had a about 2 1/2 litres. This weekend more taps will go in and the sugaring will commence.


A refreshing nourishing drink

One tap in

I thought it was well worth sharing :)
