    I had a good day on Saturday, boiling up 130 gallons. I'm still impressed with the amount of sap i can boil off with my set up after my experiences last year. I started the hobby last year with a 2x2 batch pan.

    Hoping for a good sap collection week.

    Tom, you're havin all the luck this year! Not a huge run over here. Things are pretty slow right now. Some of my Reds are running better than the Sugars.

    Still plenty of time for the trees to recharge. Forecast is showing some good temps after this warm spell.
