This is our second go for making maple syrup from the three trees in our yard. Here's a blog detailing this spring's adventure.

Running Light

Not sure what's going on but all the taps are running really slow, even though the weather seems favorable for a good run. Temps have been below freezing the last two nights with highs in the 40s both days, but the sap run yesterday wasn't even 1/3 of the day before and today looks even worse. Five of the seven tap bag have nothing in them for today. Weird.

We're going to have our first boil tonight. Looks like we have 7 1/2 gallons of sap which should reduce to a little over a pint of syrup. We'll see how long it takes.
