Today is Maine Maple Sunday. This means more than 70 maple producers, big and small from all over the state, have folks visiting who pay for an outside breakfast with pancakes and maple syrup. Some also have sausage, beans, juice, coffee etc. Some also have maple ice cream and maple butter, candies. Most have free samples and boiling demonstrations and all want to sell their syrup. Folks can walk around to see the buckets on the trees, watch a boiling demonstration at the sugar house and sample the syrup. Yes, you eat outside at long wooden tables and benches. If you are lucky it may be outside in a tent or shelter but not often. And yes, there are long lines of folks just waiting for their turn. Don't you wish you were here in Maine this morning?
