Maple season is here!

Confession: I don’t know if the maple sap season is actually here or if I’m early or if I’m late (or maybe even on time) BUT ladies and gentlemen, we have sap!

Front yard – I can see this one from my living room ūüôā

Last year I borrowed equipment; this year I have my own. ¬†Last year I tapped only 2 trees; this year I’m considering tapping the two from last year AND the two on the curb… but I’m not sure about (a) whether I’d have enough room in my fridge for twice as much sap as last year and (b) is it even legal for me to tap two trees that are technically city property? ¬†Some additional investigation is in order.

Last year, I passed on the community sap boil; this year I’m going to go! ¬†Assuming there even IS another community sap boil. ¬†I haven’t seen any ads in the places I saw them last year… again, more investigation is in order. ¬†Otherwise, I might be having my own all-nighter in front of the fire. ¬†Who¬†wants to join me and set things on fire while boiling down some local sap?
