After a long spell of -10C and colder accompanied by seriously heavy dumps of snow up here and extended road closures we're breaking out. I'm thinking that the attached forecast for our area indicates that our sap run is about to commence - warm days, freezing nights.
There is concern however about how the severe winter will effect the run in that the frost line extends far below normal levels - some areas of our town are still on "drip alert" - running a trickle of water to prevent freezing of water mains. I imagine the same holds true all through sugar bush areas north of Toronto.
Last year's supply is long gone and I'm finally forced to a dubious bottle that tastes suspiciously sweet. It will do though until the darker B Grade comes available later in the run.
My trusted and quality supplier of many years has finally retired so I will have to explore a bit.
God, his product was good. Nice dog too.
Any other info elsewhere?
