A Taste of Spring in the Forecast

After a snowy week a warm spell is in the forecast. We are not tapped yet so we will miss this run of sap. The first run of sap is usually very low in sugar content as the trees take a prolonged spell of warm weather to thaw and bring fresh sap up from the roots. There is almost two feet or 50 cm of snow on the ground so snowshoes will be necessary as we start tapping this weekend.We will have three teams of two people and we should be able to put in 3000 t0 4000 taps. It will be slow going in the deep snow.
