    Jason, here's hoping your sugar maples give you the 2%+ you're looking for.

    Good friend in Perry taps all hard maples, and is consistently in the mid 2's, even hits 3's at times.

    All tapped here as well. 16 taps in total, might go back and add another tap to a few of the trees.
    Second season. Got about 1.5 gallons last year! Looking like a good end to this week?

    Jason,
    That last 2% can get you!
    Good luck with your season across the line! I think you will get the sugar content up without the reds. About Thursday it should start to break loose!

    I will tap about 75 more in the morning & be all tapped. Just a little over 3500 taps. Tubing damage was very bad this year. Looks like some very busy days & sleepless nights coming.

    Karl,
    Good to hear you folks across the line are ready to go!
    You need to spend some quality time with the dog and .22 in the woods this fall! I assume it is a good squirrel dog?
