It’s the 27th of February and we are boiling for the first time this season. This is one of the few if not only years that we have boiled before we have finished tapping. The weather is supposed to get really cold over the weekend and into next week and it can cause freezing problems with our few lines that run underground so we left those untapped.
We have made a close to 10 gallons of syrup so far today although our operation had a minor hiccup after the power went out. We are running on generator power now but we can’t run everything. We decided to put this batch of syrup in drums to use for Maple Cream.
