Too Cold for Sap Flow

After two days of very cold weather our sugar bush is frozen solid. The crust on the snow is very hard and walking in the woods is very easy. A warm spell is forecast for this coming week so we may get another run of sap.It will take several hours of above zero temperature for the sap to flow as the trees are frozen solid.

In an earlier blog I mentioned the miles of pipes and tubing in our sugar bush. After some feed back I now realize that not everyone is  familiar with the unit miles. So for those people, we have 48 kilometres of tubes and 9 kilometres of pipes.These numbers are even more impressive.
