    Default The choir was rehearsing to night!!

    Collected 80gal tonight and I can't believe I heard some peepers!! Hate to say it but that's not a good sign since I only collected just under 800gal and made about 10gal of syrup. I piled up the snow around the tote tanks which will help with the warm up.Still running as of tonight.

    I can't believe that I haven't started yet and you are already hearing peepers! Perhaps you want to tote that new RO system of yours north of the border when you are done.

    I'm hoping its not the end already , I had a decent run in last 24 hours and boiled last night. 170 gallons on 195 taps made a little under 3 gallons of light syrup but the sugar sand was like tar clogging the prefilters. Next week we get back to freezing and long range looks like we should rebound to syrup weather. Good luck to you.

    I was just about to post about the peepers! There aren’t many singing but you can hear them. I am not showing any buds yet so I hope that bails is out! I really hope the forecast holds true.

    Nothing ran yesterday, i boiled down 110 gallons from day before and made some dark syrup . We are all hoping for the same thing ...the season not to be over , 6 gallons isn't enough for me to be happy yet.
