Last will , last supper and last boil of sap . Today we are getting all the last minute things taken care of. We were blessed with a beautiful roast given to us by our neighbour, the Heritage Farms Farm store . It was fantastic and we were happy to be able share it with some family before we go. We finally got our wills finished and taken care of. Today I also brought in the last of the sap before we go and pulled the spigots from the trees . It has not been great weather so the sap has been slow, and I think we are leaving before it really gets going, but I did get a few bottles to bring with us .
Winter was supposed to be gone in Kyrgyzstan but it is still holding on. I have left instructions to get that mess cleared up before we get there .
A couple days ago I showed some pictures of some logs that the boys had collected up. They decided that it would be better to have them cut into planks . They will be great to sell when they dry... if we have not used them ourselves first.
Either way , this has been one more skill for the boys to learn.
