Tapping out

It’s been a strange winter in Vermont; not much snow, or cold for that matter.  (Given how much snow we got last winter, it’s not entirely unwelcome!)

So pretty soon we’ll be finding out what effect this (the weather) will be having on the sugaring season:  Fraser and his crew started tapping out on Monday.

With 25,000 taps, more or less, to drill, set and connect (to the tubing) this process typically takes 2-3 weeks to complete.  But the boiling will begin soon!

Wish us luck.
