We managed with two teams to install our 7400 taps in five days. We tapped through the wet weather so we would be ready as next week looks like the start of the season. There is still 6 t0 8 inches of snow in the bush. Today the snow was frozen and walking was easy. No snowshoes so it was one of the best tapping days we can remember.
Next task is setting up the evaporator and all the other equipment and of course doing tubing repairs which turn up during tapping. Monday and Tuesday look very promising for the first sap flow.
We can’t wait for that taste of fresh syrup.
