Have a look in this sap bucket.
If it is freezing cold out there might not be anything in the bucket because it has not been warm enough to have the sap start to flow or run.
If is has been sunny and slightly above freezing then you should see some sap in the bucket.
Sap looks like water, but it is really sap from the tree…it is mostly water with a little bit of sugar.
It takes 40 litres of sap to produce one litre of syrup. 40:1 ratio
Each tap can produce 30 to 40 litres of sap per season, or around 1 litre of syrup.
This is worth repeating. The Maple Sap season last only a few weeks and one tap can produce 40L of sap which turns into 1L of syrup.
This point of interest is part of the tour: Maple Syrup Festival
