When is it too early to tap?
The weather man gave a long range forcast yesterday to the End of January. Starting at the end of this week we are going to get below freezing temps at night and above freezing temps during the day. I have always made it a rule to not let the weather man dictate my plans but....the idea of these temperatures is starting to make me feverish. Has anyone ever tapped as early as January here in SWPA? Will that make for a short season or no season at all because of a mistake of tapping to early? When is the best time to put your taps in?
