    I don't know when I'm tapping next year! Still cleaning up from this year. I'm going to have to just pull the taps under vacuum and not walk the woods with the backpack sprayer. Chemo port is in the way of the strap and it hurts carrying around 30lbs. I should give a big thanks to my friend Jay for the extra sap at the end of the season.

    Started getting ready for the 2018 season doing some fall flushing and tubing repair. My trees are in good spirits and had a great summer.

    Getting close to go time, only 38 days until I plan on starting to tap. Been busy replacing drops and spouts, clearing trees off of lines, and repairing bear damage. Plus adding more taps. Getting another post for my ro to speed that up and make more syrup. I heard that one farm is already tapping and getting sap.

    More than 6 years after Irene the damaged store next to my farm was torn down yesterday. Now I have a great view on all sides.
