Today we drilled the holes (about 2 inches deep), put the taps in and directed it to the buckets. We put tin foil over to keep the bugs out. We watched the sap drip out! Hooray! We checked it about 5:00 and have about a half cup already! I hope it starts going a lot faster.
If you have clean milk containers or clean food grade buckets, please save them for us! I hope to get lots! I hope for enough to last all year and extra to try maple sugar and candy.
