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

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.
