Slabwood

syrupwoodProgress is slowly being made out at the maple sugar operation. I’m a bit behind this year in making the firewood for the coming maple syrup season. Once I stacked the slabwood shown in the picture, I had 3 complete piles and one more nearly complete. Last season I think I used about 5 piles, so I have a ways to go before I feel comfortable that I have enough. The challenge is to fit everything in during this busy time of the year, but somehow I always seem to manage. I also have plans to elevate my gathering tank so I’ll be able to add directly to the evaporator with gravity. We’ll see how that goes.
