How Do You Spell Spring?

We spell it m-a-p-l-e s-y-r-u-p.

We put in three of our fifteen taps today. The rest will go in this weekend. The sap is flowing!


  1. Yum! How much do you typically get?

  2. We're still improving our system. Last year, with the very short season, we harvested and boiled three gallons. The year before, it was four gallons. If we have a good year this year and a long season, we might be able to get five or six gallons. Can you imagine? Six gallons of maple syrup .... Yum! Yum! I might have to stop using sugar in my tea ; ).

  3. I've been trying to figure out if we could tap our mesquite for anything. We've sure got plenty of it. LOL Will have to research it...I'm so jealous of you guys' tapping season!
