What a gorgeous day yesterday. Thanks to all the people who came to our Open House and purchased some fresh syrup. We made taffy in the sun on the south side of the barn and ate it sitting in lawn chairs. Quite a treat after our long, cold winter.
The sap flowed heavily yesterday…about 4 litres per tap here. The sugar content continues to be good, running around 2.5%. I had to collect tanks that were close to overflowing at dusk last night, so we’ve got at least 7,000 litres of sap to start the day with….it’s going to be a long boil today. Thank goodness for RO’s
