It's been a while so I thought I'd better update. October 15 is my annual traditional "start thinking about Christmas" day. (December 15th is my annual "wish I'd started October 15th day")
Anyway, things have been hopping here at the Sugar Bush. The grandkids keep us all busy. The guys have started the fall harvest, and we are two shows into our fall craft show schedule. We continue to be blessed by wonderful support from our customers.
The stocking orders are starting to pour in and it's a challenge to keep on top of them. (A good challenge, to be sure.)
This year we have been experimenting with different fudge flavors - Kit Kat Crunch, Peppermint Patty, Snicker! Snicker!. (Shown is the Snicker! Snicker!)
I have yet to make the pink peppermint yet, but speaking of peppermint, I made a batch of peppermint soap last night. I am chomping at the bit to cut and see the pretty swirls inside. But when I went to put it on the cutter, it felt soft so I will wait. I did unmold the overpour, though.
Madison has started pre-school so Meghan is now becoming my Sugar Bush helper. She is unpackaging all of the bulbs for my lamps. I ordered her Sugar Bush tee shirt. She is very excited.
