|A glorious morning with low temps and the lightest of snow left halos on all the trees.|
|Dad with the tapper (a gas powered drill).|
|Doug inserting the tap.|
|This tree was big enough for two taps!|
|The first drip of (precious) sap!|
|We ended up with 12 taps in 10 trees. Doug will go back and seal up tight |
the holes around where the tubes enter the buckets.
|This is what happens to your cold plastic taps when you bend the tubing too far.|
Doug is holding it for the picture, but I was the one who broke it! Doh!
|Right in the center of this picture you can see the "scar" of a previous tap in this tree.|
