    Did you get ever get the silo tank you were looking at?

    Still have my money on tomorrow running like a freight train.
    No silo tank, unaffordable for what they are, almost double the normal tank cost.

    Anyone boil today?
    Kevin’s probably got the life jackets out… just trying to keep his head above water…and grinning all the way to the bank.
    Meanwhile I’m over here polishing up the Clear Press in anticipation <grin>

    Collected 115 gallons from 105 buckets. Just finished first boil. Crystal clear 3% sap. My sap has never averaged that high as far as I can remember.

    sweetened the pans today and boiled a few hours . Big surprise today Sap tested at 3% . This is only the second time we have had sap that high in 40 plus years. The trees must have liked the mild temps so far. 28.67 to 1 sure is a great start.Looks like a busy week ahead. Sure do like the big maples in this bush. Remember “when the sap is runnin the saps are runnin.’

    Whoa, that's 2 for 2 with 3%. Sure hope the trees aren't further along than normal with the mild weather we've had...
    That would indicate a short season, and maybe we're further along than we'd like to think?
