The Maple Taps Are In

The taps went in on Wednesday, March 13. The flow commenced immediately. I am predicting a bountiful harvest for 2019.

This year for the first time the sap will be run through a reverse osmosis system, that should reduce water content by half. Boiling the sap down to syrup should go a lost faster using this system.

The snow pack is lower and there is no need for snowshoes, though they would make easier walking on what snow there is.
