    So I finally finished all my frozen nearup and bottled the last of it this weekend.

    My total for the year: ~1,240L of sap collcted, and 34.5L of syrup made for a final ratio of approx 36:1. Not as sweet as last year, but not as bad as I was anticipating.

    I had a record year this year.
    Hope everyone has a great summer!
    Paul.

    That's a great yield for 2021 Paul. Many of us were dealing with 1.5% sap for much of the season and I've heard from many producers who got 2/3 of a crop. These darn gypsy moth caterpillars everywhere and on everything won't help the 2022 sugar content either! I really hope this is their peak year and we're not dealing with them again next summer. Some of the oak trees are already more than 50% stripped.

    Thanks Martin. It definitely ended up better than I anticipated.. I think I had a mid-season batch of sap that was higher sugar because when I tested the first batch of sap it was around 1.7% give or take.

    Hmm.. I haven't actually been paying attention to the Gypsy moths although I've heard they are bad this year but for some reason wasn't sure what that meant.. so they like to eat leaves I guess.. that's no good.

    I've noticed one my of Silvers has a lot of black spots on the leaves which I thought might be due to the dry conditions.. I'd better have a good look at trees this weekend.. Thanks for the heads up!
