    Based on the weather I tapped the front yard maple on Sunday. Nothing flowing yet...

    Walked into the woods this morning and sap in then bottles for 2 out of 3 trees. 2.5 liters. Checked the 30 inch diameter tree I the front yard nothing on two taps that have been in for 3 weeks. Scratched my head and went for the drill added tap # 3 and came back this afternoon to a dripping line.

    Went to a neighbors to tap his 30 inch tree and the first one was immediately dripping so I put three in that tree and one in another. I will check them on the way to work. They are all running. My system is very basic; two feet of blue line connected to the tap draining into a 2 liter soda bottle. Have the blue line going thru the cap which makes it easy to pull off a full bottle and add an empty.

    If it runs all week then we may boil this weekend.

    13 liters today. 10 of them off of two trees with 4 taps. 10 taps total for now. My daughter checked the woods today and came back saying we need to add another tap to one tree that is really flowing. Then when I came in from the neighbors with 6 more liters she broke into her maple sap dance.

    I am recording in liters since I have the tubes connected to 2L soda bottles. We figured it was 5 gallons last night. Got 5L today but the warm up of the last day hurt production on our best tree. Hope it will pick back up with the 40/20 degree swings over the next few days...
