Again. Just like last season. Cleaned the evaporator during a cold, hard rain. With thunder and lighting too. It started raining around 11:00 AM and didn’t stop until around 7:00 PM. But the evaporator had to be cleaned so you do it in the rain. By 2:00 PM it was clean.
Into the woods by 8:00 AM. Back to the house by 7:30 PM. All the spouts were pulled and the buckets and covers in before the rain started. That was huge.
After the evaporator was cleaned we had a final milk can of syrup to bottle. That was ready around 6:00 PM. After clean up we were done and back the house.
Season 97 comes to a close. Total syrup: 60 gallons.
