    Yes! With the weather and this being my first year, I'm very likely pulling my taps after this upcoming weekend. I built a block arch in the yard with 6 steam pans -- I'm getting tired of waiting for calm, warm, dry weather to boil. Also, since I don't have a spacewalk in freezer to store the sap, my wife wants her fridge back . So, I'll probably boil again this weekend and hang it up for 2013.
