We are so close to having fresh syrup again! The weather this week was just a bit colder than predicted, so we have not had any large runs of sap yet. The trees did thaw out for a few hours the past couple of afternoons, just enough to enable us to check our lines for more leaks and squirrel damage. Unfortunately, we are still finding problems, including one main-line that shattered in the little cold snap on the weekend - very unusual.
The forecast looks promising, so fingers crossed that the weatherman is right! We will let you know as soon as we have some fresh maple syrup made and bottled, and we are open for visitors!
