Think unless there is some big temp swing we are weeks away here yet. My buckets are still up in the garage haven't even dragged them out for a rinse.
Did have some of last years syrup on my pancakes this morning.

Here in these parts, most of us tap on or around Valentines Day. So....just a few weeks away if it ever decides to warm up.

As always, the weather dictates when I tap, but I don't expect to be getting ready for another four weeks yet. Around here, average is first week to mid March to mid April. This has been a pretty cold winter here and if the trend continues, probably mid March before I tap.

We tapped a week ago Friday, collected almost 100 gallons of sap last weekend and made two gallons of syrup so far. We're just a hobby operation and we're hoping to break our record of 18 gallons of syrup. Last couple of years, it got warm too quick and we only have been able to make 7 gallons of syrup. It looks to be a promising year so far.

Yea. Have about 80 out. That's about all I can keep up with after work with my setup.
