Jeremiah made another batch of delicious syrup today, between night shifts. He’s got the sugaring arch down to a science. It’s still a challenge for me to run it! Eleanor was down there, helping out by bringing wood in from the shed, and, of course, testing the final product to ensure the best flavor. Quality control is important, and Eleanor is willing to step into the role!

The piglets continue to grow. They’ve started on solids as a supplement to Rose’s milk. They’ll wean soon and then head off to their forever homes. Meanwhile, they enjoy sleeping in a pig pile with their mama.
