I must say the 2017 season started quick, but has started well. 3 weeks ago our evaporator wasn't even in the sugar house after getting a new front built this fall. Yesterday we hauled up 300 gallons of 2.5% to sweeten the pans, ended up pulling off almost 4 gallons of syrup. We should get a few decent runs this week so the 325 or so taps should produce enough to have a good boil next weekend. Should start getting our feet wet with some 3/16 tubing next weekend as well.
