    Well finally finished my last batch of nearup that I had in the freezer (which was actually like batch #3). Like batch #4 turns out I had overcooked it and needed to add some distilled water to get it right. Total syrup this season approx. 22.2L from 725L of sap. Not too shabby at 32.6:1. Think I'll explore making maple sugar and maple candies this year!

    Have a great summer everyone!
    Paul.

    Nice job Paul,
    Cut and split a couple of face cords of wood up at the cabin this weekend past for next year's boiling.
    Hauled some home and stacked this morning, will haul and stack the rest next trip.......
    I keep passing by the evaporator thinking of improvements we should do but never do anything about it LOL.
    Hope everyone is enjoy the spring weather......

    haha Wisers, I'm also concentrating on getting wood in for next year's boiling! Still on the lookout for a cast iron woodstove that doesn't leak heat like a sieve, in case you stumble across one. Also trying to get into spring mode but keep expecting a foot or two of white stuff to start falling any minute!
    Been tapping since 2008, but mostly unexceptional til recent years.
    2014 - 18 taps/6 trees, 407l sap, 19l syrup
    2015 - 18 taps/6 trees, 424l sap and 20.75l syrup
    2016 - 18 taps/6 trees..701l sap, 24l syrup
    2017 - 17 taps/6 trees...474l sap, 15.75l syrup
    2018 - 17 taps/7 trees...819l sap, approx 28l syrup
    2019 - 18 taps/8 trees...585l sap, 28l syrup...21:1 ratio

    LOL.. as much as I miss the winter even I don't want that to happen anymore.. my grass seed is sprouting up and turkey hunting is in full swing!

    Susan..will you be posting a pic of the bottles from each batch side by side to see the colour changes over the season? Always look forward to seeing those.
    Paul.

    I did two major boils this year, here is the photo of the syrup from them. Not hard to tell which batch was first!
