Default When will we tap this year?

Any predictions for this year in Eastern Ontario? Given the over all mild winter we've had I'm guessing I'll be tapping late the first week of March this year.

If conditions are right in the banana belt, I'll go mid February. If the weathernetworks 2 week trend is accurate then it doesn't look like winter's coming.

Bryan,

We plan to get some taps in on Family Day long weekend and more the following weekend. I'm hoping to get a crew of guys to help get the rest of the taps in on March 3-4. Of course, this can all change on short notice!

I was counting on a mid March start. But only because I still need to put a roof on my sugar shack (and finish the new evap.). Running outta time!

The long range forcast is slowly working up in temp. Still on track for the first week in march, maybe just maybe just a touch sooner.
