    Just got cheated, last night was supposed to be 22 it ended up being 45. it should be very interesting season. I just don't want a repeat of 2017, total for the year was 25 gallon of sap for 50 tree's.

    Sugarbug,
    You have put a lot of work into saving a old building! Congratulations! You will have fun making syrup and memories in there! I boiled in a building similar for years!
    Hope you have a great season too.
