    Yesterday was it for us in Ashtabula County. Most of my trees have dried up, even though I used cv spouts. Same for some others around me. Syrup still tastes good just not enough sap to run ro. Being on oil, it hurts to boil raw sap. First time we havent made over 300 gallons in 4 or 5 years. Will end up at around 255-260 gallons.
