Day at the sugar house/farm

Today we went to the Drumlin Farm to check out the sugar house. They walked us through the process of tapping maples and boiling the sap down to syrup. I didn't realize that it takes 40 buckets of maple sap to make one bucket of syrup!

Miles snapped a picture of these sweet lambs that are just a few weeks old. There were also some very new baby goats huddling under a heat lamp in the barn and tiny baby mice. There were quite a few animal babies and from the looks of it there soon will be many more. Spring must be close, despite all the snow.

On an unrelated note: Last week, Miles shot this image of the lunar eclipse. Pretty nice for a beginner with a beginner camera!
