For those who love Minnesota-made maple syrup, enduring this week’s wintry weather isn’t so tough. Because of the recent cold spell, the state’s maple syrup season has been prolonged.
It takes quite the process to get local maple syrup from the tree to your table. The biggest indicator of how much we’ll get to enjoy is determined by Mother Nature.
It arrives all too quickly, but alas, it’s here: Labor Day weekend, the official end of summer. If you’ve already made your pilgrimages to the Minnesota State Fair and the Renaissance Festival, what else can you do on this glorious long weekend? Plenty.
The official start to spring was last week. But the weather hasn’t felt at all spring-like. And those anticipating the sweet taste of spring will have to wait.
