3/11 The Flow Has Stopped - For Now

I was out there this morning after a warm overnight and the taps have stopped. YEsterday we got over eight gallons of sap from the seven taps...That's a big day! Emptied it out and hung the bags back up...tonight there's nothing in five of the seven bags...totally shut down due to the warm temps for 36 hours.

Big snow coming (so they say) tomorrow and some colder temps well below freezing. I think I'll give the first cooking a go tomorrow afternoon. With almost 15 gallons so far, we're about 3/4 of our total yield from last year.
