Vermont Maple Syrup

Freshly produced (2015 season) Vermont maple syrup is available at local farmer's markets.

It should dry out by Tuesday - I can't help you but you can take all you like.  I'm at 6629 E. Thunderbird.  You can see it in the driveway.  I've used all I will need - piled it in the yard for now.  I need to get it off the drive so let me know when your done and I can let others come get some if you don't take it all :)

Hi Mary, I'm excited to win, thank you! I'll try the Oregon Spring tomato if that's okay with you. :) I didn't plant any fall tomatoes this year, so any tomato at all would be a real treat!
