    No real good sap runs again this spring, but I did manage to get about 13 litres of grade A golden syrup from 360 litres of sap, on 44 taps, 5/16" plastic on drop tubes to buckets.
    Some trees just started running last weekend so I'm going to leave my taps in for one more week and see what happens, temperatures dont look promising but who trusts a weather "prediction".

    Pulled all my taps today, not worth leaving them for another week
    Went from winter to summer pretty fast again this year.
    Some trees didn't even have a chance to run.

    I think i'm probably one of the last ones in the province still collecting good sap. I was all ready to pack it in after only 2 weeks of slow sap runs, and then the the forecast called for two or three nights of freezing. Cleaned out my pails and sure enough the sap started up again on Sunday. Probably running slow today as well so tonight i'll get to burn up what's left of the firewood. Hopefully get a few more litres of late season dark. Still 6 inches of snow in my bush. Same as last year, almost into May and boiling sap.

    2014 - 40 taps (22L of syrup)
    2015 - 60 taps and a new 2x3 pan (25L of syrup)
    2016 - 90 taps and a brick lined oil tank arch (60L of syrup)
    2017 - 100 taps (60L)
    2018 - 60 taps (12L of syrup)

    Very nice Northwood.
    I had to turn a blind eye to my trees when I walked passed and saw all the sap leaking down to the ground this weekend because I pulled my taps and cleaned up last week ;-;

    All done!
    The sap ran Sunday and Monday thanks to the -5 temps overnight. Boiled late into the night to get through 70 gallons of sap. Low sugar but that's to be expected. +12 to 16 through the weekend so that will be a good time to clean up. Finished with about 24 liters of syrup from 60 taps. Not a great year but the syrup i did get was all great quality. Have a great summer everyone.
