    Very cool that you make your own maple syrup! It seems hard. Voted!

    First Thanks everyone for your comments. Things are going good. I have more chickens coming in the spring along with pheasants and 2 goats. I will start bees this year as well. I have hops arriving anytime too.

    As for my profile picture it is called a rocket stove that I built out of an old milk can anf some exhaust pipe, works great for cooking down small batchs of maple syrup.

    May your chickens be happy and your hands get dirty.
