    Done. Earlier today I bottled 2 1/4 gallons of nice tasting dark and 7 1/2 gallons of slightly off tasting dark. I guess I didn't quit soon enough. So, totals for the year are 4,200 gallons of sap and 73 gallons of syrup. Mostly cleaned up, just a little left to do yet.

    We are still waiting for the last run. The ground is so dry around us that I think the trees are thirsty themselves.... Maybe with this rain it might decide to open up again.

    Anybody bit on this warming trend? My plan was to wait till the 3rd weekend in February but I always start worrying when I see these 50 degree stretches.

    Nope looking at the forecast it’s going to get cold.To early for me to tap, not going to let my gas powered vacuum run during a month and a half of cold weather.

    Boiled today. had 75 gallons from my vacuum line and gravity line combined. Had rough time. I HATE STINK BUGS. They were in everything and everywhere. Burned a hole through my stack and just did not go smooth. Got to almost syrup to draw off but ran out of sap. I will drain pan in the morning and put this in the walk in freezer until the next run. Did I mention I hate Stink Bugs.
