Gifts from the Farm: A Christmas Countdown - Day 4

Well, here we are, just four more days until Christmas! Today's gift comes from trees...

Day 4 - Maple Sugaring

Maple Sugar Tap

Trees that give you SYRUP.

"We elves try to stick to
the four main food groups:
candy, candy canes,
candy corns, and syrup."

Buddy the Elf

I didn't include this in yesterday's post because, while it's something farmers can show or teach, it's not like most people can then go home and tap their own maple trees (unless you have the right kind). Maple sugaring is a seasonal activity, usually taking place in the spring.

The gift of sweetness!
