About two weeks ago we put the taps in the old maple that has been in our front yard longer since before it was a front yard. With the warmer days and the nights below freezing the sap is starting to flow. Here's a picture of my boy on the day that we put the buckets up. Last year was our first year making syrup and we didn't get much but what we the little that we did get was amazing, hopefully we be so lucky again.
