    I haven't had time to tally up the season, but I think I produced the same quantity as last year, or about 40 gals. The vast majority of this coming in three weeks in March. With such a late start for the season, I did not think it possible to match last year's totals. I'm sure I could have added another 10 gals if I ran another week. We had the weather for it, but I had commitments I could not postpose. I will have some final numbers soon.

    Wow, 2020 already.

    Lots of work to do here. I had big plans last year which did not materialize, but I did get the electrical service (50 amp) into the maple barn. No concrete floor, or expansion of the building. The arch needs some repairs (broken fire bricking). I do have a new service truck (2007 Tacoma) and plans to buy a filter press. I'm tired of flat filtering, and the mediocre results.

    I've no plans to tap before February 15, but we shall see how the weather goes.
