February 3rd and 4th Russ and Titus started tapping the maple trees across the field from Tenwood Lodge and putting out 5 gallon buckets to collect the sap. It can become second nature knowing which trees are Sugar Maples after a while, but since we are new to this we asked our local forester to help us mark trees for our first tapping, especially since we didn't look before the leaves fell off! We're hoping that we'll be boiling Maple Syrup soon! Contact us at TenwoodLodge@gmail.com to schedule a tour during our maple syrup production, we are hoping (but not yet sure) to be in production during Ithaca Loves Teachers week. Consider coming to spend the weekend at our B&B and visit Ithaca!
