{FSC Time Machine} Tap Your Own Maple Syrup

four buckets

Over the course of a few winters, Dianna has compiled a detailed series of posts on tapping maple syrup in your urban & suburban surroundings. The time is now to read up on the techniques, supply list and process so that you can begin tapping in another couple of weeks as spring is right around the corner!


Dianna’s first post was an overview of the whole entire process with an emphasis on equipment needed. A great starter piece to read!
