    Ive been done for about a week now, the sugar just dropped to low for it to be worth boiling. Looking seriously at an RO for next season, I dumped at least 2000 gallons that was below 1% or at that level. I wont dump it next season. Had a good year , topped last seasons totals and your right on track Derrick, the syrup turned darker at my halfway point and no matter what I did it wouldn't come back up, its got great flavor but all DR .Looking to build a preheater as well with a hood , very happy with sap totals with the 3/16th lines I ran . Kinda cool when I tap less and get more because of the 3/16th lines. Good luck all and have a great summer.Al

    Hi all, been a busy year with the bee hives and the farmers market. I walked the mtn today checking lines, had a lot of trees down but thankfully nothing drastic on the lines. I had a few branches here and there and 1 broken line looks like a deer chewed it between trees. I'm looking to punch in here very shortly and let the lines run the crud out. Sugarhouse looks great and I'm excited for a new season, let me here from you all.

    Spent the morning on the Mtn replacing lines. I had cut down a bunch of old laterals last spring ,replaced them with 3/16 th laterals today. Came home and worked in the barn for a few hours on bee stuff , then a couple hours in the living room making drops for the new lines. How's everyone else doing ,take care all, Al

    Crazy weather to say the least... Been up on the hill several times to remove branches and cut a few blow downs. Lost one good tree and had to fix some mainline that suffered that wrath. Hopefully temps will drop back down and build a snow pack in the next couple weeks. I'm going to hold out on tapping till last minute this year. I think I jumped the gun last year and taps weren't producing at the end of season. Good luck to all....

    Finished tying up loose ends today, it ran very little collected maybe 100 gallons , good to flush the lines. I'm hoping to get a couple good runs this week to sweeten the pans . Everything is falling into place, Have a great season all,Al
