While waiting, Jim has been able to spread manure on the hayfields and pastures. The ban to spread manure on frozen ground here in the VT was lifted on April 1 (two weeks earlier than usual). The cows in the barn will start to calf within the week. We shall post some photos at that time.
These photos that we are posting are from sugaring. The first is sap coming into the sugarhouse and going through a homemade filter system. The sap looks like strings of water crystals. Then the second photo is sap boiling in the evaporator. The stages of clear sap to liquid gold.
