This is as close to religion as I get. My ancestors have been doing this springtime bucket dance for over a century. with wood spiles and wood buckets another century and first nations people for probably thousands of years before that. I only put out 20 taps this year on the woodlot I'm trying to buy. Its very early in the season and over the last three days only about 2 litres per tap has flowed the weather has not been cooperating. if you do not get freezing temperatures at night and a sunny 5 or 6 degrees celsius during the day you get no sap.  On a good day you will get 8 litres from a good tap. This year I've moved the boiler into the greenhouse. I'm trying to add humidity to the soil and increase nighttime temperatures. On a big boil day I can actually make it rain as the condensation drips down off the plastic disturbed by a breeze. Its very peaceful and highly addictive. To see the life essence of a tree in spring boiled down to something so special is magical.
Cheers






 


I read about that Strategic Maple syrup reserve Canada has a few weeks ago. You folks DO take your Maple Syrup GOLD seriously.

Here in Vermont, Climate change is slowly destroying an important export. As you know, for the sap to run well, you need the pumping effect of above freezing temps in the day and below freezing at night. What is happening due to climate change is that the winter stays cold until it doesn't. So, we are increasingly experiencing low sap yields from lack of below freezing temperatures at night during March and April, normally the best time to harvest sap.

Enjoy your sap while you can. I don't think Canada will avoid the fate of Vermont.  :(
