Sap Flowing!

Spring has arrived in the sugarbush with the sap finally flowing. By this time last year, we had made over 100 gallons of maple syrup. What a difference a year can make! As of yesterday, we have about 1200 gallons of sap to boil - more to add today, with highs in the mid 40's. We look forward to boiling and tasting this years maple syrup. 

Today we'll continue to walk the sap lines, identifying and repairing any loose fittings or leaks. These repairs will give us our maximum vacuum pressure, which increases the sap yield dramatically.  The snow pack is still deep in the woods  - this should help extend our late season.

Here is the extended forecast for our area - looks promising for sap flow.
