    Default Has anyone started yet?

    Has anyone started yet? The 10 day looks too cold for me. If things warm up i may get to tap this weekend.

    Hoping to make about 30 gallons this year. Good luck everybody

    Not looking good here either for the next 10 day forecast. cold, ice, snow, freezing rain, plenty of snow on the ground here already. i got one tap in over the weekend just for fun.. will wait awhile yet for the rest.

    Ground is froze solid here yet, after this last ice storm while going out to take care of my birds you gotta wear cleats, ground does not break away under you and is like one big skating rink.. gonna be a weird season this year i think..weathermen(computer models) keep changing things around..
