    Still boiling, in the north end (North Bay) I taped 55 trees this year, all buckets. Had 3 boils so far. Made about 18 litres of syrup. Forecast for next week looks like we might get a few good days. Still snow in the thick parts of the bush.

    2016 - 90 taps and a brick lined oil tank arch (60L of syrup)
    2017 - 100 taps (60L)
    2018 - 60 taps (12L of syrup)
    2019 - 75 taps (22L of syrup)
    2020 - 75 taps (25L of syrup)

    Still going here as well, some decent sap flows lately. Sugar content is still up around 3%
    Approximately 610 litres sap to 19 L syrup between 66 and 69 brix

    Collected another 230 + - liters in the last 4 days, and the upcoming week should be productive as well. Down to 43 taps from 51
    Things are still worth boiling up north from the bush trees, anything in the sun is dried up
