    I’ ll install my pump tomorrow. Must be able to boil before the end of the week.

    Still receiving snow over night for the next few days.

    Good Evening

    Nice weekend. 2.5 brix for the SAP…. Was a very nice week. 8g of syrup and still 100g of sap to boil.

    Clear syrup with touch of vanilla not too much sand was easy to clean tonight.
    Little break for few days. Weather will be below freezing point for 48 hours ….

    Happy Boiling
    Cheers
