Every year I get caught with my knickers down - garden-wise that is. I am probably very late to be asking these questions, but do any of you guys tap maple trees for sap?
I acquired two proper sap gathering pails, complete with tapping spigots, at a garage sale two years ago. Still haven't used them. I saw an article in the newspaper about some men in Belle Plaine that tap maple trees every year, and it makes be think I may already be too late to do it this year. Do any of you know? I am in the Kenyon area (50 miles south of St. Paul). I would just love to try these things out. Carmellia
