So is it spring yet? Yup! The sap's been running in various spots around Nova Scotia. Is it running here at Sugar Moon? Not really...although it probably did a week ago. Sounds like it will really be the first run for us later this week, with the rain that they are predicting.
Scott is racing the weather at this point. He was up tapping most of today. A few snags in the process but otherwise fairly smooth.
When will the first boil be? Depends on when we're finished tapping and when the sugar camp is ready to go. It's a bit early this year so we're trying to get ready quickly. Long range forecasts are....interesting. How will this season go? Ask us in May.
