It look promising this week to tap and we will begin, most likely, on St. Patricks day and have most of our buckets out by this Saturday. Now granted Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday temps are warm, in the 50’s. Red and Silver maples will most likely begin to drip some early in the the week. Keep in mind that we have not had any January or February thaw and that there is frost and snow and ice that really needs to go away for the big sap runs to happen. Temperatures in the forecast for the next 10 days do not show extreme warmth so perhaps this could shape up to be a “normal season” if there is such a thing. Hope for an early April, wet snow fall. These are awesome for large sap runs.
Be safe out there,
