    Swapped out a full 5g bucket this morning and saw a couple others that got a good run over the weekend.

    How're everyone's trees doing?

    2017 - 15 taps - 4ft drop lines to 5g buckets - barrel evaporator named "Bessie" - ?? gallons

    Collected about 10 gallons on 12 buckets since Friday. Shut down arch, ro, and vacuum today for the year. Might have a propane boil or 2 left.... time to break out the trout pole

    Yeah I collected about 24 gallons from 15 taps last night, but the early taps i put in are pretty slow and probably won't yield much beyond this week.

    collected another 34 gallons by yesterday from the 9 taps that were still running last week and made another gallon or so over the weekend. saw some sap in the buckets this morning from overnight, so maybe one more run and boil before it's over. :-)
