    My sales, have now slowed some, but are still above all previous years month to month. I still have good local sales at both my 1 retail outlet and out my door by appointment only. While Feb and March sales were over 2x my previous year's sales, it slowly fell to about 25% over previous years on a month by month comparison. I still think I'll have enough syrup to carry me to the 2021 season. If it had stayed at 2x previous years I'd have needed to buy bulk.

    We moved our scale for weighing blueberries for our u-pick operation outside. Set up a little table and large umbrella. Put pints and quarts on table and 4 out of 5 customers will buy syrup. Should sell out in 2 more weeks, crazy this year.
