Season 3, Episode #3~ Snowy Saturday and Black Walnut Sugaring

After another unusually warm week, Blind Hog and Acorn were not only able to work the goats and get them vaccinated, but also tap in 25 sap spiles into the black walnut trees, plus a sycamore.  

Acorn collected 19 gallons before the sap flow stopped- due to warm weather, but after the next 10 days the sap should flow again because it is going to get cold…  19 gallons boiled down to five 8-oz jars…  60:1 ratio…

Hay has been fed, woodpile loaded up.  Snow continues to fall…
