Maple Syrup Time!!!
G tapped the trees this week. He hung 10 buckets.
we collected the sap yesterday and today. We got a total of 26 gallons of sap
And the boiling begins. It will take probably at least 20 hours to boil into syrup.
About 20 years ago, G started the tradition of hanging a plastic snowflake. He called it the magic snowflake. He said once it was hung it would call other snowflakes. The kids made fun of him. Usually about the end of February or the beginning of March, they are begging him to take it down.
I finally was able to get back to my soap making.
Ingredients for lotion bars: Top left to right. Coconut oil, beeswax, Hemp seed butter, Bottom: Cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, Freeze dried goat milk, Vitamin E.
I made unscented, tea tree, lavender mint and bug off(lemon and eucalyptus)
