Oh that's right........

 The trees run VERY well when they look like this after a snowfall.  1300 gallons from the woods this morning.  Tomorrow will be the same.  Busy cooking this afternoon to make room for tomorrow.

The trees liked yesterday's rain!!

 The trees were definitely happy with yesterday's rain/lightening/thunder.  It was an obvious sign of Spring, and we collected 800 gallons of sap today. The Sugar Shak is ready-to-go!

The MAPLE TREES are awake!

 Who didn't enjoy the great weather this weekend?!  The Maple Trees have awakened from their slumber and we're ready for whatever they send our way.  We collected 600 gallons of sap yesterday and had our first boil of the season last night.  After we get past these next two unseasonably warm days/nights, the next two weeks look perfect for the mapling season!

A few photos from our preparations this week.  

Cleaning our finishing pan.....

Which led to the discovery of a leak in the pan.  So we had a welding project.....
