    Sure hoping we get a spring, winter is dragging on now. Was looking at last years records and we're pretty on the same pattern; off by a day or two.

    Seems like we get 1 little run per week, then froze up for another week? Looks a bit better for next week. Mother nature has to soon step in. We had more snow last night again?

    Finished boiling Friday evening, long drawn out season but ended up with more syrup than last year. I think the sugar content was quite a bit better. Started cleaning up yesterday, do some more today I guess.

    Last boil for me was Thursday night (6th). Ended up with around 10% more sap than last year.

    How's she goin'? Wow what weather eh? Anyone setting any taps yet? I was thinking after seeing the forecast into the weekend I might set a few tomorrow to see what runs. Any thoughts?

    I stopped in Fenwick on the why home from Springhill tonight, the first sugar camp was boiling Mondays sap and the two larger ones are a couple days out from finishing tappping. I've got 600 taps,on two shurflow pumps for vacuum might wait a week yet, and if i was still running buckets definitely wait at least a couple weeks minimum.
