    I did 60 taps (8 on 3/16 gravity) the rest were buckets. I got 425 gal. of 3.5% sap from Feb 11 through Mar 12 (pulled my taps early because of prior committmets). I ended with 12 gallons + a qt. of amber syrup. Was my 1st real season with a half-pint. I am happy, learned a lot this season and making plans for next year.

    Anybody else have weird sugar maple buds this year? Although I am all done and cleaned up I am still keeping tabs on the buds. They look they are shriveled up and dead looking. Barely touch them and they fall right off. In many cases they look to have a tiny sliver of green going to them, but still feel awfully fragile.

    Finished 4/11. Should have quit 4/2 because it wasn't worth waiting a week for a final boil. Oh well. Anyway, great season but a weird one. Plenty of sap but it took 58 days to get it all. I'd rather have 4-6 week season with the same amount of sap.

    Broke over 60 gallons this year and made all the grades. I'll be adding more taps this summer and planning some other upgrades.
