Today is Maine Maple Sunday. I love this day! A day to celebrate agriculture and good food. A marvelous holiday, indeed!
I do feel bad for those farmers who rely on the maple syrup sales. We have not had warm enough weather for the sap to really run. I imagine quantities will be very limited. I hope people remember these farms weeks from now and return to buy some syrup.
On our own little farm, we do have a bit of sap. My husband and I were up until midnight boiling down some so we can have pancakes for breakfast. I think I might just walk out to the coop to get the freshest eggs. Homemade pancakes with fresh eggs and syrup still warm from being boiled down...yum.
Here's a little collection of memories of years past. 2011, 2013, 2014 (we were sick 2012, bummer)

One thing for sure....pancakes will be for breakfast, with our very own maple syrup!
