Digging Out Maple Sap Lines

Sap Lines Buried in Snow Everywhere We Look

The last Wednesday’s/Thursday’s storm as well as the 8 inches of snow we got this weekend has buried 90% of our lines. We have never seen it this bad.

Maple Sugar Camp Buried In Snow

Snow, Snow & More Snow

Alec paid a visit to the sugar camp on Tuesday March 17th, as you can see from both of these pictures that after our last storm on Sunday/Monday a lot of the main and secondary lines are buried.

Tapped Maple Tree and Maple Syrup Production

Maple Trees Are All Tapped!

The maple trees are all tapped but Alec is still digging out the lines. Lots of snow in the woods, however snowshoeing conditions have improved. Sap ran a little today but not enough to fill the evaporator. The sap sugar content measured at 2%.
