Maple Tree Tapping Season 2015 – tapping my tree

Tapped my trees the other day, the days are getting above zero and the nights below so sap should start running any day now!

Using my old equipment,my food grade hoses and my plastic spiles / taps and of course my tupperware at the bottom to collect it all.

I’m hoping this season will be better than last season. My goal every year is to create enough maple syrup to last our family for the year but I never get close really. Likely I’d need to produce 10 litres or something to fulfill that but I’ll keep trying. I only have 1 big tree and I”ve tapped this big old Manitoba Maple for 4 years now or so and every year it produces well!
