    I have had about 60 taps out for the last few days, and have a little over 100 gallons of sap to show for it. First boil will be tomorrow.

    Dutton? We're practically neighbours!

    I got 10 gallons on 14 taps today. Two trees are still bone dry. One massive tree with four taps accounts for half of it.

    Put 125 buckets out a few days ago, and collected about 100 gallons of sap today. Planning on boiling Monday but really need more sap.
