First Posting of Wild Blog

Hello All: This is our first posting of "Wild Blog," and very much a test of the system to gain some familiarity with blogging. So, we'll be brief. Our intention is to relate information, histories, personal stories and opinions about salt and maple syrup making as it happens. There very much will be a seasonal aspect to it all and how the unfolding peculiarities of forest and ocean weather, in the Hudson Valley and on Cape Cod, give unique character to the experience of making salt and sugar, as well as impacting the flavors and qualities of these special foods.
