    Ended up working on syrup contest entry today and cutting wood. There’s a little more sap out there as the 3/16 was running, although slowly this afternoon. Now that I’ve got more wood, thinking tomorrow night will be last fire.

    Had a good visit with Kevin H yesterday. He wanted to check out our sugar house and rig. Take note; that young man is going places.

    Jeremy, how did your boil go today?

    Hey John it went well. Chased what we could with water and finished about two and a half gallons on the turkey fryer. Great year. Lots of unwanted breaks, but all in all a fun year.
    One thing's for sure, weather while boiling was great compare to snowy and rainy seasons of the past

    Still hanging in there....as of this morning, about 80 gallons in the 3/16 tube tank and maybe another 30 or so in the bags. That's about 2-3 hours worth so I'll boil that off tonight and as long as it keeps coming will boil until it turns the corner on me. Can't spell qwit...

    Made 1 1/2 gallons of dark Monday night with great taste, but sure had to work for it. Took over 3½ hours to boil off 95 gallons- the stuff was just sitting there, it made no sense. Maybe because it was a clear night, barometer was fairly high at 29.4. Had great wood, standing-dead locust I had just cut up and split, fired hard but could not get the boil I should have. Only had that once or twice before...we should have been breaking 40-45 gph but that didn't happen. In the end, I think it was the high pressure.
    That was boil #16 and put us at 28+ gallons so far this year.. Note I said "so far"
