Maple Syrup coming soon: we're always learning something new at Tenwood Lodge!

POSTED ON JANUARY 15, 2018 BY KIM N

"Ithaca Loves Teachers" is a fun way to spend the Presidents' week break in Ithaca! All teachers are welcome to sign up through Russ and I are teachers, he's retiring in June 2018 and I can't wait to have him around more without his crazy commute. I homeschooled our 5 kids for 13 years then became an occasional substitute in 4 different NYC public high schools. I will be blogging a bit about the new "Sugar Shack" which he's been building since August 1. Returning for his last year of teaching Agriculture at John Bowne High School and deer hunting season interrupted his building progress, but he's almost done. Our son-in-law, Titus, and our daughter Abigail have done 2 seasons of tapping and syruping and Titus has been helping Russ get the evaporator ready. Russ inherited the evaporator from our dear friend Dick Oltz who made it himself and passed away in May 2017. We plan to use this to honor Dick's memory and as a fun way to enjoy time with friends, neighbors and Tenwood Lodge guests. Plus we hope to be able to produce some great tasting syrup to serve and sell
