    Default Another war spell coming!

    Weather is calling for 40 degrees and rain next week (southern Maine). I'd hate to tap this soon and have my holes produce less during the main run. Last two winters have been so unpredictable. What is every one else thinking?

    with this cold spell we have had could take 2 days just to thaw out and the long range is for friday to turn cold again just not bitter cold.I say if you dont have many thousands of taps, hold off for 2-3 weeks.

    A couple weeks ago for what they call the January thaw, I had 5 days straight daytime temps above freezing and no sap. I tapped two trees on the second day and nothing came. Watched the next three days and no sap at all in 5 days. We are now back to freezing temps day and night. The trees knew to hold off.

    Just my two cents.

    2011- 35 taps, ,,,milk juggs and buckets-propane turkey fryer !!
    2012 -75 taps,,,,, 40 on tubing into buckets, and 35 buckets - 3nd hand Homemade arch, brutal.
    2013- Just over 115 taps and still adding more.
    2014, new SS flat pan and new arch built, guessing 75-100 taps this year.
    2015, 50 taps on Shurflo pump.
    2016- Getting a line across my creek this year.
    2017-took a year off, Jamaica was fun !
    2018- 45 trees tapped, keeping it fun !
