So much for getting sap…

We tapped the trees a few weeks ago.  It was a lot of fun and we have 8-10 gallons of sap collected, but then… it got cold.  It got cold and it stayed cold.  The trees haven’t done much in the last couple of days, and I’m not sure that they will continue to run after the weather warms up again.  At least I only tapped half of them the first time around.  I have several more left to tap when the weather finally warms up for real.  I’m hoping to get enough syrup to last us through the year and to have some to share.  We’ll see…

    How much does that reduce down too then? Will that only be a gallon of syrup or something?

    LOL, no not even close to a gallon. More like a couple of cups. It takes A LOT of sap to make syrup.
