The forecast for the next 10 days again seems to indicate that the weather will be right for sap to flow. We'll see. In my limited experience, every season is a bit different. Two years ago, the season was short. Last year was longer, lasting about 5 weeks.
Last year, Wendy and I inspired a few families to try their hands at back yard sugaring. When I posted the book give away last week, I was contacted by Joe from TapMyTrees.com. Joe has offered, in addition to answering any questions any of you may have about sugaring, to give away a starter kit. The only restriction is that is ships to a US address because of the cost of shipping. So, here is a chance for some of you to get started, or expand your operation. To enter, please leave a comment. Share this and get your friends to enter, too. This is a very generous offer from TapMyTrees.com. The winner will be selected on February 14th, generally accepted as a very sweet day, so that the winner can get started this season.
|This is what the kit contains.|
