The tapping was completed this weekend.  It was a very unusual spring since all of the snow was gone when we tapped due to the record high temperatures this past week and weekend.  Brent and Bruce tapped 350 taps in the harmon woods on Thursday and then on Friday Brad, Brent, Jim, Dave and Bruce tapped about 1500 trees in the new reworked section on the south side and finished up in the NE hole - Bruce & Dave had the honors of completing the stress test for the final 2 lines. It was more difficult since we had to fix up a sap line cut up by turkeys and a broken bit by dave.  On Saturday we finished up the balance of the tube lines (about 1500 more) and 400 sap bags in the center of the woods.   Vinnie, Brandon, Brent, Bruce, Jim, Dave, Kevin, Mike and Eric do the majority of the work.  Brent Blegen helped Jim for about 2 hours. After tapping 6 of the tappers headed to the 70’s nite at Deans with a nitecap at JR’s in downtown Plum City to celebrate the completion of the tapping.  Jim took down the first sap of year from the home woods (268 gallons) on Saturday and there was 750 gallons in the harmon pickup tanks at 5:30pm today.   With the weather going back to normal over the next 2 weeks we are expecting a good season.  Weiss Woods is now ready to go for the 2015 sugaring season.
