Spring Has Sprung

Took a trip to the woods today and whilst i was there thought i would see if the Birch Sap is up yet, in a word yes it is and in abundance.

So not wanting to waste anything a quick simple tap was set over a metal mug lashed to the tree, i left the mug there for a little while while another tap was set in an adjacent tree, albeit this time, i set a double tap over the one collection mug, wasn't long before a refreshing drink and the pure taste of nature was enjoyed.

I made a short video of the sap running so people could see the speed  at which it's flowing, the video is on my You Tube channel here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9np5pbBeow

Yep, spring has sprung at last.

  1. Hey Kep, no luck here in Norway. We are still a month or two away from collecting birch sap.
