    Another good overnight run. No totals as yet -- not at work so can only see the tank measurements on H2O Smartrek and our cams. One 3,000 gal tank in the Main Bush full and spilling over into the 2nd tank (photo below). Looks like 4,500-5,500 gal or more yesterday. Sap sugar was 1.6 Brix in the afternoon. Flow continued until until about 3:55am, then stopped. Started up again at 8:45am this morning. We have enough storage (I hope) to let it run, so will wait and start the RO first thing in the morning. Concentrate should fill up a good portion of the bulk tank, but we'll probably let it "chill" and boil on Tuesday.

    Sap flowed way down but syrup quality still very good. I think a third of a gallon per tap from our Jericho woods today and similar or less in Westford. Make some really good tasting stuff today. I think we hit half a gallon of syrup per tap in our Westford bush today but i'm not totally sure. Crazy to be boiling still. I think we will have our last boil on Tuesday night. Will be good to be done, haven't really realized how much free time it will give me. so used to just working and not thinking about the end, just getting through each week and keeping vacuum up and everything. Peepers started yesterday.

    Pretty good flow yesterday after freeze. Colder last night but not much sap today. I guess it’s over.
