For our first year of sugaring, we ended up with just under 1,000 taps, and our woods now look like something out of the Matrix:

In other news, the chickens are pretty pissed about the snow. After such a strangely un-white winter, we got about a foot of snow last week, and the ladies have been refusing to venture outside since. Remember when you were a kid and you pretended something on the ground was hot lava, so you and your friends couldn't step on it or YOU WOULD DIE *arms flailing*?! That is how chickens feel about snow:
Thankfully, part of their run has a roof over it and can protect them from a molten fiery death.
I don't have anything to say about this picture, except that I love the weathervane on our barn:
