The Sugar Moon was Wednesday night. 📸 Scott Whitelaw. He says (on FB): “Lol all the "worm moon" posts! There ain't no worms wakingup in Earltown. (Still 4-5 feet of frost in the ground). Now, the maples trees? They're trying to wake up for sure. Small run of sap today with, hopefully, more to comefriday/saturday. Guess that's why the Mi'kmak people's called this the maple moon :-)” My post from Facebook: “Extra-special moon tonight we have had Mary Louise Bernard facilitate a Sugar...

Scott was home by midnight last night. The sap indeed ran steadily all night so we’ll be firing up at around 1 pm today. The photo below was taken by Matt, our fireman. Here’s what he shared on social media: #Repost @earltownmatt ・・・ Scott @sugar_moon_farm drawing off the first batch of syrup for 2019. This was my first time firing the evaporator and I really enjoyed it! It’s a peaceful place, especially compared the hustle and bustle of the pancake house! We saved a small vial for...

Time to do repairs🔨. Scott’s been up in the woods these days checking for breaks and replacing drop lines where needed. Conditions are great. Definitely icy in spots and he still needs snowshoes, but it’s definitely good going. The storms this year brought down a few trees, including some of our mainline supports😫The system is showing its age this year. We’ll have to replace those supports with more permanent poles, but not til after the sugar season. Otherwise....things are looking...

10:28 am So after several days of wintery cold, the temperatures are creeping above zero - right now it's raining and about plus 3 here at Sugar Moon. Waiting to see what the trees do. Because the sap is 97% water, we need warmer temperatures for it to run. There are several forecast sites that aren't calling for it to go below zero tonight - that bodes well.

12:10 pm Scott came home at 1 am this morning. They left a full tank and a half and the sap still running. Today though the temperature's supposed to drop by late afternoon. The sap will stop. And then it'll be a waiting game again and the next few days are going to be super cold. All went reasonably smoothly last night. There are always a couple of glitches at the start of the season...like a malfunctioning thermometer, things like that. The syrup is awesome. Took a little more time due to the...
