We tapped our trees at the end of February. It was a difficult sap season for most everyone with the early thaw and lack of cold evenings. . .most of our trees are tapped in brooks so we did okay anyhow! Maybe have canned 4 gallons of finished syrup. . . One of my favorite times of the year. . .I love watching spring unfold and being out with the trees as their lifeblood begins its flow is very magical.
