sap continues to run after being stalled by warm weather
After an early start to the maple syrup season in March, we had some unusually warm weather in Nova Scotia with temperatures over 25 degrees Celsius , causing the sap to stop running out of the maple tree. Although everyone enjoyed having a summer day in March, maple syrup producers were not satisfied with their sap collection. Thankfully, in some areas of the maritimes, the temperature has gone down far enough for the sap to start running again. Some maple syrup producers are now collecting sap again, and hoping that the colder weather will last for a while longer.
