    2019- 85 taps 55l syrup

    2020- 100 taps New 4x2 foot pan plus 1x2 pre heat pan. New homemade arch. 6x12 addition added to the shack.

    I've got a few hundred gallons of sap in my buckets/tanks - but with cooler temps moving in this week - will put off collection and boil until next week when + temps return.

    Finally got into the bush this weekend... The snow was tough to work in. Got my 200ft main up and 125ish taps on 3/16 tapped... Trees were producing a little bit... I let that run to the ground, to flush out my lines.
    Hung another 300ft main and marked trees for it. Should be able to get another 100+ taps or so.
    Bigger producers around this neck of the woods, were getting tanks etc set up, Saturday.... Not everyone is tapped yet though. One fella got all the roadside buckets tapped on my road, Saturday... Some have an inch in them and some are empty as of Monday AM.
    With the exception of Wednesday +4, it looks like we will be at freezing temps till next Monday. I think my timing is pretty good, this year.
