So far it's been a pretty steady spring with the sap just gently trickling each day. At least that was the case until a few days ago. Now, we have been having absolutely perfect weather for maple syruping and the sap is gushing. Each day, the five-gallon pails attached to each of the 500 taps are full to the brim. On Sunday we collected over 1,000 gallons of sap and we still didn't get it all. The maple syrup season of 2009 is turning out to be a real winner.
