The trees really want to produce sap. The temperature hovered around 3 degrees, not normally enough to produce much sap flow but once again we were surprised and collected 2ooo or more gallons of sap. Tomorrow the weather looks very similar to today so we will be boiling on our big evaporator as well as at the kettles and wood fired evaporator. The trails are snowy but passable and it is very interesting to see all the animal tracks in the fresh snow.
All our equipment seems to working well now that we have our pumps fixed. The syrup is Amber (or medium) in colour with a good flavour so the season is progressing favourably. It’s a good time to visit for a taste of fresh syrup or taffy on the snow.
