Sugaring 2012
Well, We began to boil sap on March 4th, and boiled again on the 6th. Then it froze up and stayed frozen for about a week. Now on the 15th, we have had days over 40˚f for at least a week, with hardly any freezing happening. I am making grade B now which is a darker syrup due to more yeast growing in the sap as a result of warmer conditions. Its too warm for a sustained season, at this point.
We'll see what happens after monday when the temp is supposed to hit 76˚!! I have made about 1/3 of a "normal" crop.
Ground is bare, robins and Red-wing Blackbirds are singing...I heard a frog in the woods!
