Sugaring

Filed under: Early Spring,Monadnock Region — Frank @ 6:15 PM

March is prime time if you are in the maple syrup business. The sap is flowing and folks are boiling more-or-less constantly.

This weekend a number of local sugar houses were open for “tours”. I put tours in quotes since most sugar houses are small structures and thus a “tour” consists of maybe eight or ten people at maximum standing in a circle around the evaporator.

Joan and I took a break from our regular activities this afternoon and visited two Antrim sugar houses.

I, of course, took my camera along.

  1. South Shore Camera Club just came back from a sugar maple tour in Northern VT – complete with about a foot of snow! Looks as if they survived the drive and shoot.

    Tough venue with a camera as the area is tight with people and those of us with cameras are constantly trying to find the best vantage points.

    Charlie and the window shot stand out for me in this round.
