Tapping the trees 2012

I finally got around to tapping some maple trees last weekend. The weather was great on Friday, and so-so since then, with some rain and snow. I’ve still managed to collect about 30 gallons of sap, and we’re looking to do a boil this weekend. I still have to build some sort of evaporator, but I think we’ll be alright. If the weather keeps up and the sap keeps flowing, maybe we’ll do more than one boil this year. Probably not more than two though – there’s lots of other stuff that needs to be done!
