    Started with 65 taps but could not keep up with the flood of sap. Pulled 19 ,and still the sap is overwhelming. Have over 600 gal.think I'll pull another 8 to try and keep up. Good problem to have.

    The weekend netted 174 gallons unfortunately that might be the last of it. Seems the weather man is not playing very nice. Short season with low sap totals. Thats nature for you. Still thankful for what we got.

    Looks like it is all over for 2016. I have about 6 gallons of sap sitting in the kegerator waiting to boil. Total syrup just under 5 gallons for the year. No grade A amber this year. Hopefully next year is kinder to all of us.

    Today was the end of a mediocre season. Had 110 gallons from 2/27-3/12 made very dark syrup. Previously had 105 gallons from 2/20-2/27 and made light amber. Got a 42:1 ratio both times. At least this was better than last year.
