Maine Maple Sunday

Sunday, March 22nd. The second day of spring. Every year the Maple farms around the state open up their farms for the public. A few of us headed out to Merrifeild Farm, in Gorham, to check out this widely attended event.

Later that day we had a brief snow storm. Yeah... you gotta love Maine in March.

And yes indeed, ice cream covered in real maple syrup = euphoria.

I think in cold climates, these trees store starch in their stems and roots before the winter; the starch is then converted to sugar and rises in the sap in the spring.
