The sap ran a little yesterday and we actually collected! Spring is here! BUT...
We only collected about 5 inches before it stopped, far from enough to fire up the evaporator. The trees are slow to wake up, and it's a slow process given that there is still several feet of snow in the woods.
The rain coming tomorrow should knock down some snow. Cross your fingers!
Meanwhile we're totally enjoying the schools and groups coming here and they are LOVING all the snow. Today over 50 Grade 2's and 3's from Maple Ridge School soaked up the sun and snow and sugar - what a great group!
Here's hoping that Easter Weekends brings lots of people for their annual trek!
