Amazing. Still running. Next year I will definitely give it a go. The catch is going to be how to have the sap store well over time. For example, it’s 73 degrees today and the sap is running, but at those temperatures there is no way it will store well over time.

The other major issue I forsee is with bugs. When I removed the buckets after a week, of just leaving them on and letting it go – due to being too busy and giving up on this project – the buckets were filled with bugs. I mean filled.

I think I’ll need to look into those sap sacks if I’m going to do birch. Just need to make a mental note of that…
