Well, it's that time of year again! The past four days have been beautiful, sunny, and mild enough for us to get out in the woods, laying out and stretching our lines in preparation for the 2009 maple season. We've been able to get lots of work done in a short time so far, as the walking in the sugarbush is relatively easy; not too much snow, and it's almost crunchy enough to walk on without snowshoes.
The long term forecast predicts another two weeks or so of cold, wintery weather before warming up at the beginning of March. If that forecast holds true, we should be right on track! We're hoping for a good season this year so we can re-stock our empty shelves! Wish us luck, and keep checking back for updates as the season gets underway.
