    Default New Brunswick 2022

    Thought I would start a thread to see if any others have started yet. I have two small lines run and going to get the taps in today. Upcoming week looks to be our first good run. May have missed a couple days here and there but nothing much.

    We're officially starting today. Have been frigging here & there, but will start repairing & tapping today. The next week looks promising, hopefully we've turned the corner from the cold!

    I had my first boil on Tuesday. Had about 40 gallons which was just enough to sweeten my pans. The RO bucket is a huge time and wood saver. Hoping for good runs today and tomorrow. Good luck to everyone.

    We're tapped & all the line repairs done. Now to get tanks cleaned & shack set up & straightened around. Hopefully we don't get as bad a mess as they are calling for. Would almost rather have snow, then all the rain they're talking about.

    Got all my taps in. Cutting back a little this season as I have a lot of syrup left over from last season. Sap was running a little this after down here in Kings county. Yíall think itís going to be a short season ?

    I keep looking at the forecast and it seems like it could be short but hopefully not. I had a decent collection today but not like I thought it would be. I'm going to boil what I have tomorrow regardless.

    We finished taping last Saturday, 675 taps. It ran a bit today, hopefully we can boil on the weekend. Good luck to every one.

    How's everyone making out? I haven't collected anything since Friday. Hopefully tomorrow will bring some in. The nights just haven't been cold enough. It ran a bit today but not worth collecting.

    We made about 3 gallons on the weekend, not running so good this week, looking better for next week. Sap is sweeter then last year, tested at 2.6 this weekend.
