    Dunno how those collecting barrels are gonna thaw out. Today I will re-plumb my 5/16 lines which have way too many flat spots and point them straighter down the slope.

    I pushed tapping back until last Sunday due to cold temps the week before. It looks like maybe I should have waited another week.

    I'm planning to tap this weekend. It's felt like a long wait, but in the Berkshires it's just been too cold for buckets until now.

    2016: First year. Homemade evaporator out of little woodburning stove with steam tray pans. 6 taps on buckets. 1.1 galls syrup
    2017: Same little homemade evaporator, but souped up. Still 2 steam tray pans. 15 taps on buckets. 4.5 galls syrup.
    2018: Same setup. Limited time (New baby!) Downsized to 12 taps and short season. 2.2 gallons syrup.
    2019: Still very limited time, with a one-year-old. Downsized even further to 7 taps and a short season. 2.1 gallons syrup
