    16 miles South of Aitkin. Nothing this week - could be the end, we'll see the next few days.
    Low end of average here - currently at 580 gallons on 99 taps (my ave. is 7 gal per tap).
    What are your averages ……. for sap per tap?

    I'm just a hobby guy. Normally 70 taps but i quit collecting at 120 gallons, about 3 gallons of syrup. Just for the family. I live in the cities and need to get it all done over a couple of weeks at my lake home. Tap trees, collect sap and boil. This year with COVID-19 I decided to skip it. Then, i saw the weather possibly looking good this week and was tired of sitting around so i decided to see if I could catch the tail end of the season. So I came up and put in 40 taps yesterday. Not much happening today. I may have waited too long.
