Sap Flow Returns to Somerskogen!

Temperatures climbed into the mid-40's  by noon on February 27th.

As the new releaser and fittings were assembled deep in the woods at our collection tank, we observed the first sap flow of the season. This is a full two weeks later than the 2017 season, but more typical of our average start. The flow was insufficient to even consider processing, but enough to declare "game on" for the new syrup season. The weather looks very favorable for this next next week. We anticipate making syrup in the next few days, but Mother Nature always rules.
