Maple sap lines ready and waiting. It won’t be long now.
I didn’t realise it was done so early in the year. Definitely something to look forward to!
Another topic about which I am really ignorant, but I do love the end product!
Getting close to tapping time. We are tapping this weekend if all goes well.
Do sugar maples grow in Missouri? Getting tired of Log Cabin on my pancakes.
Yes, they do. This spring or summer look around your yard and the yards of your family, friends and neighbors. If you find a tree with some maple leaves on it, you’ve hit pay dirt. Mark the tree and come back with a spile and a pail and you’re ready to collect and boil sap to make Maple Syrup for your pancakes. 🙂
I’ve got two maple trees in the yard, but I don’t think they’re sugar maples.
You will still get sap from them, just not as much as from a sugar, and the sap boils down to delicious syrup just the same. 🙂
I remember being a little girl in Michigan and the excitement in our small town when “the sap was running”. Enjoy!
Well I didn’t know that…sheesh my mom had a bazillion maples on her property when I was growing up…
Looking forward to all the signs that spring is on the way.
