    Default Pulling taps in Hudson

    Pulling buckets today in Hudson. I think the Sugars have more to give, but the Reds are close to budding. Things picking up at work so a good time to call it. With a clean up tonight I will top 5 gallons. Had a blast and made some nice stuff. Already planning for next year! Have a great off season. Thanks to all for all the advice. Time to get some much needed sleep!

    I pulled mine in Merrimack on Saturday, sap in one of my collection tanks was really cloudy and goopy, thats the best word I can use for it. My other 2 were still great and nice and clean but after a great early week they were barely trickling. Been a great season for me, so no complaints.

    Sorry for the delay. Right next to the old Bensons animal park. Suburban sugaring at its finest.😄

    So your near the Mass border? I suspect that me being one mile from Canada I should get two more weeks.
