    Default Pulled my taps today...

    I usually run about 20 taps, this year I'm recovering from a total knee replacement that was done at the beginning of January.

    To limit my hobbling around and appease my better half, I only tapped the 2 sugar maples in the yard. Pulled the taps when I got home from work and boiled down the last of the sap.

    Had a good year for 5 taps, ended up with just over 2 gallons of the sweet stuff. Enough for us and a little to give away to the people that matter.

    Hope you all had good seasons.
