Tapping 2015 1st Tree
|The Ford 2N, about 1947, sat quietly resting since November and with an overnight battery charge and some ether spray in the carb, it popped off. Plowed out the driveway to the cabin and opened it up too. No mice damage noticeable!|
|Drove the Ford to the top of the hill to see how well it would drive through the 6 inches of snow--no problem at all--not icy underneath, so should be an easy year to collect sap.|
|The driveway into the cabin--snow is soft and sugary so it plows aside easily|
|The sap shed walls are made from old doors and windows given to me from a neighbor.|
35 degrees F and sunny -- time to get back to the woods!
