Closing time

It’s time to close up the camp for another year. We will be open Sunday, April 28 then after that by chance or by appointment. With the rain and snow showers today it felt like maple syrup season all over again. Sunshine and warmer weather are in the forecast so maybe spring will finally arrive. To mark the end of the blog for this season here is a closing poem.

Another year has come and gone
A bumper one for sure
I’m very glad that it is done
It was all we could endure.

Sometimes the sap ran all day
Sometimes it ran all night
Sometimes it ran and ran
When we didn’t think it might.

So we boiled and boiled all day
We boiled again at night
Sometimes we still were boiling
When came the first daylight.

We packed the syrup in bottles
We packed the syrup in drums
We counted all our produce
And did our yearly sums.

We’ve syrup enough for orders
For candy and for tarts
And lots to offer clients
Or ship to foreign parts.

We thank you for your patronage
We hope you’ll come next year
When once again we’re open
Cause we’re planning to be here.
