I am quite happy with how my season went even though I pulled taps back on Feb 23rd.
Could I still be making syrup, heck yeah. Would it be good syrup? Not so sure about that.
I have no means to off load a lot of dark or off flavor syrup so what is the sense of me sticking with it just to get bigger numbers?
So I took advantage of the warmer temps back in Feb and cleaned everything up and put everything away. I am now onto other things, things that on a normal year would still have to wait for a few more weeks.
What is a normal year anyway?
