The tree is in full leaf and the sap hasn’t flowed for weeks. This update is overdue but first I had to grieve the complete failure of syrup season 2012. Final yield of sap: 1600ml. Final yield of syrup: 1600 ÷ 40 = don’t-bother-boiling-it-down.
A friend’s tree down the block had a good run. I don’t know why our tree didn’t. We tapped earlier than ever before – in February. The tree also budded earlier than it has before thanks to the summer-like weather in March.
Global warming is ruining my crop!
