A week after tapping 12 trees we did our second round of sap collection. All together we’ve collected about 8+ gallons of sap – enough for about 12 ounces of syrup. The nights have been cold with daytime temps anywhere between 32 and 58. The coming week is looking downright spring-like with highs predicted in the upper 40s to 50 and the lows only down to 36. We may have started our adventure into sugaring a bit too late this year!
Yes, that’s my fashionable tween there wearing shorts and Muck boots in March!
