Sugaring Time Is Here

Things are warming up.  We are starting to see day time temps up above the freezing level and night time temps are still below freezing.  What does this mean?  Well, it is time to dust off the rubber mallet, taps and buckets.  I am going to tap some Maple trees this afternoon.

Last spring sprung really fast and we totally missed sugaring season here in the northwoods.  Seeing has how we just opened out last pint jar of syrup from 2011, we need a good sweet season.  I am hoping to get at least 70 gallons of sap this year if not more.  We will just have to see what out 8 taps will do. 

Off to the woods I go.
I will keep you all updated on the flow.
