The biggest maple news of the moment is this: there’s a maple syrup shortage. Did you know? Facing this maple-tastrophy, Canada has tapped its strategic maple reserves and flooded the market with nearly 50 million pounds of maple syrup. A sticky situation. (Apologies.)
How will this affect American maple syrup makers? Only time will tell.
In celebrity maple news, Ryan Reynolds cries pure, 100% maple syrup tears. We knew we liked that guy!
Backyard news is in and it’s all about the holidays, birding and winter sports. Oh, and finding the remains of an ancient Roman house in the backyard. Notable!
Creating a holiday winter window box is keeping some busy in the backyard, while others are planning their DIY ice rinks with help from some booming backyard rink enterprises. Until then, there’s always backyard football!
And that’s a wrap! As always, there’s more maple and backyard news around every corner, around here!
