So, the other day, I told y'all we were going to try tapping our boxelders and boiling the sap down to syrup. Well, my friends, I finally got to Fleet Farm on Friday to see if they had any spiles, aka maple taps, left. They didn't, so we had to get a little creative.
If you really want to make your own spiles, do a google search--all sorts of creative people out there.
For more information on tapping trees and making syrup, check with your state's extension service. Or Tap My Trees seems to be a good source for information and supplies.
