Northern Gardening: Maple syrup

When the nights are cold but the sun warms the trees during the day, maple sap starts flowing and many people in Cook County head to their sugar bushes to harvest maple sap and make it into maple syrup and sugar. On the February edition of Northern Gardening, we hear stories from local maple syrup makers – from Grand Portage to Finland, small-scale to commercial.

Northern Gardening airs the second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. and is rebroadcast the following Saturday at 6 a.m. All previously-aired programs are archived on our website, to listen to at any time.
