    After a few colder snowy days I expected a good sap run today. Not so. Some ran decent but most didn't give us much. How did they run for you?

    Same here, a good run for a few hours yesterday and then it slowed way down Ran a little overnight last night and it still flowing slowing this morning. Hard freezes next few nights should reset everything. I still see a couple nights below freezing early next week still. I may go from a concern over how much syrup we made (or didn't make) to a concern over how much wood is left...

    Well it's all over. All in all not too bad a season. We ended up with 22 gallons, a few less then last year but acceptable. Sap to syrup was 47 to 1. Much better then last year. Boiled 18 days and that along with the length of the season and the long boils kind of kicked my butt. I have to look into getting a bigger pan for next year to shorten the hours boiling. Arch needs a lot of work also as the high heat that I put through it is taking it's toll. I guess we will have to be bigger and better for next year. Also tried infusing some cinnamon into some syrup and it turned out excellent. By the end of tomorrow everything will be cleaned up and packed away with only washing out the lines left. Hope everyone had a great season.
