Down to 12 overnight. Sunny, but windy and cold all day. It was cold in the syrup building even with the evaporator going. Maybe 26 for the high. Tonight cold again with lows in teens. The ground freezing did dry up all the mud from the snow the other night. Supposed to reach 38 tomorrow, but starting so cold its doubtful sap will flow.
Into the woods by 8:00 AM. Caught up on cooking. By 3:30 PM our concentrate tank was empty. We started the finishing pan by 1:10 PM so it was ready by 3:15 PM to filter and bottle. Bottled 24 qts, 9 pts and 12 8 oz bottles.
Back to the house by 5:00 PM. The R/O saved us about 13 hrs of cooking over the past two days.
