It has been almost ideal sap weather since the sap began to run on last Sunday. So far we have only made light colours syrup We thought it would be Golden but on checking it is a very light amber. It has that light early season flavour which is particularly good as a topping and preferred by many people as their syrup of choice.
The weather is forecast to continue on the mild side so we expect more sap. The Kettle Boys are planning to set up for the weekend and the Shanty Men have already made some syrup. There is some snow on the trails but a visitor today walked our longest trail and enjoyed seeing all the animal tracks. The woodpeckers are busy drumming on the trees which is a sure sign of spring.
