The weather has been amazing for collecting sap.
Sunday, the temperature went from the 20s to the 40s. Like the obsessed psychopath that I am, I checked the taps every few hours to look for sap dripping.
When I first tapped the tree, I could literally see the sap dripping.
On Monday, the temperature got into the 50s. I got home from work and checked the taps again, and was crestfallen to see that the sap wasn’t dripping out of the tap.
However, when I checked the buckets, they had sap!!!
Tree #1 just had a really small amount. I didn’t bother to measure it, but it was probably 1-2 cups.
Tree # 2, on the other hand, produced 3 gallons of sap!!!
Check this out!
Sweet, sweet victory.
