    Heading out to put on drops... hoping to do 600 today. Then a bunch more tomorrow should finish up all new drops for this year. All I have left is the manifolds..... plus this that and the other.

    Going out today to run another, branch line, adding hopefully around 150 more taps minimum. Planning my first sap ladder. Have not yet decided which type to do. Thinking I'll run the branch and then get the exact lift needed and then will be asking lots of questions.

    We have warm spring like temps with lots of rain. Snow is almost all gone. Eric said it felt like we should be tapping. I am sure the trees might run a little today.
    I will be working on the AOF input piping system today. Basicly 2 inch PVC to run from the evaporator to the outside of the sugarhouse.

    Happy New Year to all!

    Happy new year everybody. Less than 2 months left now... got to get finished!!! You know when it starts to closer as the trader picks up more and more everytime I come on there are new posts.

    Got All my new drops made, switching out T's but ran out about 50+ short. Ordering them tomorrow. I put together the all my saddles but I don't think I have enough so I'll add on a few more of those to my order. Hopefully thats it, maybe an extra roll of tubing just to have some on hand just in case a tree comes down over the winter. And a few clear seasonal spouts for the gravity tubing. Hopefully that will be all I need.

    Tomorrow I'll start to get as saddles done and then start putting in drops. Gonna make a nice drop carrier out of a concrete tube I have left over just gonna put on a strap and cut a circle for the bottom. Once thats done well..... the list goes on. hopefully done in 2 weeks or so.

    with all this warm weather I am sure the sap is flowing!!! the maple bug is diggin in ...watching maple videos on you tube!!!! and gettin excited.
