    Didn't get any syrup but my pan is sweet! Boiling again Tuesday and hopefully I'll have a good run tomorrow. And then I should get some syrup off it. Luckly for me I'm on afternoons this week and ppl are working so I'll be keeping the syrup this week

    Yesterday was a good day. Two trees are still dry, but I got about 16 gallons out of my other four trees. Hope it continues!
