WARMER WEATHER HAS NOT HAMPERED MAPLE SAP FLOW--Cornell Cooperative Extension Learning Farm Manager Charlie Hitchman in Canton told us even though it's been above freezing at night the past few days, and well above freezing during the day--less than ideal temperatures for sap-gathering--the season has been good so far because of more-than-usual snow cover on the ground, which brings more moisture and keeps trees from "waking up". Hitchman says sugar content has been excellent.
