The sap run was so-so yesterday but sufficient, as there is a lot of sap to cook. Jim showed up on his ATV yesterday afternoon and with two collecting it was not much work. Paul and Joanne arrived yesterday evening from Three Lakes and will help with sugaring all weekend, and another couple will likely arrive at the sugar bush on Saturday so there will be plenty of help and I will attend to other matters.. Andy cooked barbecued ribs last night and they were delicious, served with real wild rice. Like all good camp cooks he will not divulge his secret sauce ( oh, a little of this and a little of that) but I saw the maple syrup bottle used liberally a couple of times.
