    Aye, Esetter. I think we'll be tapping early next week according to the current forecast. Really, we probably should of tapped a few days ago but we're doing the University of Louisville tapping workshop next Friday so we try to coordinate our season start around that.

    If I was using tubing, I think I would tap in late December and see how the season goes from there.

    It is from the SapTapApp. This map will torture me as everyone south of me starts reporting weeks before my sap flows.
