    Default In the Deep Freeze

    Looks like I've got about 100 gallons or so frozen solid on the trees. I guess that's about the best way of keeping the sap fresh until I can collect it. My only problem is that some of my bags are going to be overflowing the next time we have a good run. Next week looks promising. I've swapped a few bags with less productive trees to help keep that at bay. I'm limited to weekend warrior status so I'll be gearing up for a big boil next weekend. The deep freeze killed this weekend. The snow is still deep up here too. Collecting is still an issue. Ha Ha. Always reminds me of the famous question I get, right after I explain the entire process of making this stuff.

    "Wouldn't it be easier to just buy it?"
    2011 15 taps.
    2012 40 taps.
    2013 100 taps, all sap sacks. Custom built 2x6 wood fired evaporator and sugar shack.
    2014 125 taps.
    2015 145 taps.
    … 2019 175 taps.

    The answer should just "yes", but the other question would be 'is it as satisfying to buy it vs making it yourself?'
