Sap tapped, but not flowing
Spring is here, but the maple trees don’t believe it — the sap isn’t running yet.
What with the deep snow and the lingering winter temperatures, it’s been a tough year so far for maple syrup producers in the area.
“Last year we were done at this time, we’d pulled all our equipment,” said Jerry Jacobson, who taps about 2,000 trees on 120 acres near Vergas. “This year we don’t even have a drip in the bucket,” he said on Tuesday.
