We finished stretching out the lines last week, and we've been taking advantage of the warm weather over the past two days to begin tapping. The sap was actually running today it was so mild! As soon as we drilled a hole, the sap would start dripping from it, running all the way down the tree. However, the forecast for the weekend is for another deep freeze, so the season is not quite upon us yet. We can feel it just around the corner though, so we're eager to finish tapping in order to be ready when it arrives. I think the anticipation is what makes this such an exciting time of year!
