    Cooked down again another 2 3/4 gallons, tubs are full, anticipate cooking Tuesday for another 3 gallons, bringing total to about 8 gallons, biggest year ever for our little one acre operation.

    Yes there is still some snow. Probably 2 feet in the woods still. I am up to about 200 gallons of syrup now and looks to be a few good runs yet this week
