Justin Has Tapped into his Roots

Shipwright Justin Ingersoll comes from western New York state and a long history of maple sugar making there.

Sugar maples are running this year!
We have to admire shipwright Justin Ingersoll for his maple sugaring this past week or so. He has been coming here after work to check on his trees and on Sunday he was here until midnight boiling the sap and it looks like he has a pretty good haul of maple syrup.

Although he tapped only two trees in the yard, he  has diligently sat boiling the sap in his make-shift sugar shack all week. Justin is a true renaissance man as he not only can he make his own maple sugar, but he can also hunt with bow and arrow,  build boats, snowboard, ski race and is a champion turkey caller. He can also make awesome pancakes and has been delivering jars of maple syrup all around to go with them so we have to thank you Justin for both tapping into your roots and our trees as it has been fun to watch and the syrup is amazing!
