First week of April:
March was a long and busy month for us. We have been boiling almost every day. Things are winding down now. We are still boiling and now are making good flavored grade A Dark syrup, however it won't be freezing up at night much longer which is what we need. With the warm temperatures that are coming in the next few days, the sap will turn and won't make the quality of syrup that we want to make. It will soon be time to pull taps.
This time of year is really nice in the woods. The snow and ice are pretty much gone so no more snowshoes or cleats to deal with! The birds are coming back and flowers are pushing their way up through the leaves.
Enjoy the changes this month has to offer!
