I guess it depends where you are in ny. Ive got 70 gals in the past 2 days from my 51 taps, all reds on buckets except for two sugars. Not great but its something.

Not much here also 200 taps and about 30 gallons in the. Past two. Days

I have 12 taps and collected 20 gallons today. I use milk jugs and they have been overflowing...first thing this morning I got 9 gallons, lunchtime another 5, and then another 6 before heading to bed. I boiled down 30 today with another 20 waiting. Not counting this run, I have already made over a gallon of syrup.

I'm guessing its a pretty good year, considering its my first year.

Yesterday at 2 o'clock o gal. at 6:30, 150 gal.Can't wait to check this AM. Good luck all, Going to be a busy week-end.

Only made 7.5gAl so far on 160-180 taps, ratio 57:1 for me. Pumped 175 gallons yesterday to knock down today. Been slow going mostly reds for me.

I think the reds vary just like sugars do. I dont test individual trees but I have 48 taps in red, 2 in sugars, and 1 in a silver and the sap tested 2.3% in the tank using my sap hydrometer. Much higher than last years %. I'm sure the numbers will change but so far so good. I hope you all have a great season, good luck!
