I was asked "where have I been?" ... Using this post to renew my participation at this great Board. I was sent a couple of photos on the process of making home-made Maple Syrup. How many Trees make it practical? And is it worth all the trouble? These were sent to me to share.

I have a drill bit for the tree...Bottles for Tapping...Boiling Pot open fire.
Seems like a lot of work... I might have to just go to the corner Market. What do you say?
