The weather is right for backyard sugaring.

An evaporation system does not have to be fancy. This was one I made out of a fire pit and some steel posts to hold the grate and pan.
A Sweet smokey aroma is a sure sign spring is here.
Daytime temps above freezing and night time temps in the 20's is all that's needed to start sap flowing.
This is the weather pattern we’ve been waiting for.

Winter’s grip is slipping. Highs above freezing and lows in the 20’s at night are ideal to start maple sap running. Backyard sugaring is a great way to get out into the fresh air. This weekends taps will provide next weekends sap for evaporating. Mixing sweet syrup and smoke from a fire is the recipe for delicious.
