Being the first Tuesday in March, today is Town Meeting Day, a guidepost marking the turn of seasons. Town Meeting Day is to sugar season what Memorial Day is to summer. For me, both days signal permission to buy paper plates.

Of course, we speculate on when the season will break open. Always, we say, “I wonder if it will be like last year.” We don’t want to have to wait on pins and needles until March 30th to boil, as we did last year, but we also hope to make a good crop, as we did last year.

But, let’s stay on task:

 Waiting its turn to be tapped
