From the Maple Tree to Sap…
Maple Trees are a blessing!
We tapped 70 trees this year beginning March 3rd and untapping April 5th.
Following are photos from our Sugar Loop Day 1 thru Day 4…Tappin’ Trees:
Make a hole in the tree at an upwards angle (about 10 degrees) with no more than a 2″ depth.
Hole waiting for a tap…the sap is already drip, drip, dripping.
Kiah digs in her bucket for a tap.
Milo hammers the tap into the hole.
Diggin’ out the arches.
Collecting firewood for the upcoming fire.
Don’t forget to taste the sweet sap right from the source!
Look for our next post “From Sap to Syrup” in the next few days.
