Happy Wednesday! Our maple syrup season is well on its way and we’ve got several bottles of syrup put up so far. But this past weekend we had quite the setback. I had been boiling down about 18 gallons of sap all day and got down to the final finishing steps. I was in the other room while the sap was boiling in the kitchen when I smelt something off. When I went to the kitchen I found that my stainless steel pot somehow began leaking at the seam! Approximately 30 ounces of sticky nearly-syrup had leaked out all over my gas stovetop. I was bummed to have lost all that time and sap, not to mention the super sticky mess to clean up, and the loss of my favorite pot! Definitely a disappointing day, but brighter days ahead 🙂

Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
