    Have your trees stopped running ? or is the sap getting that off taste and look ?

    Actually had a good run yesterday/last night. Up until then it's been good sap just not much of it and the forecast isn't showing any temps below freezing after Sunday for an extended period. Freezing up tomorrow, hopefully will get recharged for Saturday. How are you making out Erob?

    The weather has been pretty inconsistent up here near Fredericton. I've only boiled once but my trees are just starting to give really good now. I'm hoping the weather can hold before I call it a season. Lets hope the weather man isn't right

    I agree erob, trees are just starting to flow better the past two days. Been slow so far and still a fair bit of snow on the group up here where I'm at. Sat-Tue are looking really good. Hopefully we'll get some colder lows those next few days so it's prime all week.Screen Shot 2021-03-19 at 1.13.17 AM.jpg

    We bottled last night our first batch, only 27 litres (6 imp gal). Apparently we had our auto draw set too low, took forever on the finishing stove. Saturday thru next week temperatures look good as long as it gets cold enough at night. We do expect a short season though.

    Congrats on getting that first batch done murferd. How's is the sap flowing up there now? Weekend down here was alright, Sunday especially. Today was good as well.

    Sap flowed good Sunday, yesterday & should be good & tomorrow. Not sure what to expect after that. Not calling for any frost at night at end of week. Hopefully we can get through that because night week temps look good.

    Glad to hear everyone is getting something. My weekend was decent as well. I was really surprised as warm as it was that it ran as well as it did. I see the night time temp changed for Saturday night to below zero. Fingers crossed we can go a bit longer.

    Hoping we can survive this warm stretch, it has been hard on snow & sap flow. We've still been getting a fair amount everyday, but not like we were at first of week. We're up to 50 imp gals(227 lt) bottled, about on average for the number of days in operation. Next week temperatures look good, ice hasn't gone from river, so we should be ok for awhile.

    Finishing some syrup today that I started boiling down yesterday. It is pretty dark stuff which I like. Seems like it could be the last batch of the season down here. Hopefully the trees hold out and we can get another good run next week were as the temperatures are looking more normal for early Spring. Also I have a question for you all. What mentioned do you use to measuring when you have finished syrup ? Hydrometer, thermometer or something else. I'd like to know
