Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Pleiades Maple Winter Report

Pleiades Maple Products' Eddie Lou Meimer shares:

Last week’s ice storm only caused minor damage in the sugarbush. Prayers were answered when the temps rose Wednesday a.m. and the rain washed the ice off the lines and tree branches. All the lines were already up and ready to go. My son Jim and his crew began tapping the trees yesterday and will continue today.

Batteries are charged and drills are ready to go for another day. Forecast for this weekend is good. If it really warms up into the forties the sap will flow.
