    Default 2022 Missouri Tapping Season

    I was able to tap about 50 trees today, in the rain. None were running. I think they will start after the cold snap in a few days, and I could tap either today or next weekend. I am hoping to capitalize on any early season flow. We'll see I guess.
    Lots of trees, bees, rocks, firewood, and syrup.

    Tapped another 40 today. My trees are running, and I have mostly frozen sap in my buckets from last week. I think the temps for next week look great. Looking forward to a good start of the season. I hope to see some more Missouri regulars on here this year.
