Tree Tapping 2020

January 26, 2020

 Typically I tap the trees on Super Bowl Sunday, but the weather conditions have all the maple sugarers champing at the bit, and I could hold out no longer. When you seek the help of teenagers, you have to wait unitl they wake up (after noon). Scott was available to assist with the drilling, tapping and hanging of the buckets. And of course Coco assisted as much as she could.

I am up to 20 taps and conditions look good this week for sap production, so I could be boiling Saturday if all goes well.
