We finally had the perfect weather for the sap to start running! Cold nights and warm, above freezing, days. Seventh grade students joined Mrs. Guzzetta to check the bucket for their first collection of sap. To their surprise they found about a gallon of freshly produced clear sap that “looks like water.” How exciting! Students transferred the sap to a food grade bucket donated by Hegedorns Market and brought the sap to the AC freezer where it will be joined by other sap in the couple of warm days this week. Once we get back from February break, students will tap their thirty trees in the vast AC campus and begin adding to our collection in the refrigerator in preparation of the big boiling day. Stay tuned as the excitement builds!
