Is the sap running yet?

Good Morning, we have a bit of snow today which seems almost quaint after the mild winter we have been having.

I picked up a half gallon of maple syrup from Somero Maple Farm here in New Ipswich. It is quiet in the evaporator room, but soon they will be in full operation. The conditions have to be just right for the sap to start flowing. The temperature has to be above freezing during the day and below freezing at night. Just a few more weeks to go.

I gave this a try in February of 2010. A fun project.

By April the sap gathering stops and all the equipment is cleaned and stored for next year
