In the Field Of Opportunity It's Tapping Time Again!

This is the weekend. Same as last year. February 12th I'll be out tapping some trees. Still a lot of snow but nothing that my new snowshoes can't handle. I always wanted a pair but I just couldn't justify them until the Winter of 2011. The forecast is a solid week of warm daytime temps and cold nights. Perfect for and early run.

I've been washing buckets, collecting new ones, and tweaking my evaporator. I'll let you all know how it goes.

The Ansonia Nature Center is having their annual Maple Fest I believe on the second Saturday in March. Looking forward to that event. Always a good time with good people.
