Started the day by taking down the remaining 100 or so buckets and spouts.  Finished by 10:30 AM.   It rained overnight so the buckets from Monday have water on their bottom rim.  We turn the buckets upside down, but the rim on the bottom collects rain.  Now we have to wait for the sun to dry them.


Next cleaned the syrup pan on the evaporator.  Its nice an shiny again.    Also drained the R/O and took out the membrane.  The membrane will go back the manufacturer for cleaning during off-season.


Bottled at 3:00 PM.  We still have to bottle two more times.  We should end up with around 80 gallons of syrup for the season.
