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.
