Racing the weather

Steam stack's up, sugar camp's ready for a boil.  Craziness, this season.  Scott says this spring is the earliest he's experienced in 23 years of making maple syrup.  

 

And last year was the latest start.  April 11.

 

We're not fully tapped in, but tomorrow will bring sap and we'll want to be ready to boil.  

 

Our neighbours, Maple Mist, have made yummy syrup already.  

 

So there it is...an erratic but early start to spring.  Winter's over folks!
