    NJs#1 is getting over 400 gallons a day on 600 taps on high vacuum. He's killing it !. I rigged up a 12 volt tractor supply 1 gpm pump on 4 lines of 5/16 and it's running hard out of pump.

    I got about 90 gallons yesterday, hoping it doesn't spoil by Sunday, hoping for a bit more. Some Reds have big buds on them though.
