Warm up

Fresh syrup HOT off the press!

Almost everybody's really happy with this week's forecast of warm temperatures...except your local maple producers.

 

This week of mild weather has the same impact as the cold weather in March:  no sap. 

 

The temperatures have stayed above zero for the last three days, so the run has faded to a trickle. We need another cold snap to prime the trees for another run.

 

The syrup we made yesterday doesn't give any indication that the season's over. Both colour and flavour are one would expect to get right in the middle of a sugar season, not the end.

 

So we're not going to call it a season just yet. We'll wait for a couple of cold snaps and the trees should run again.

 

Next weekend, Easter, we're open Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon 9 to 5. Sounds like good sugaring weather that weekend - we'll keep you posted.

 

It was great working with Bob yesterday. Made delicious mid season syrup.
