The day was sunny and warm, but with a east wind. It was cold overnight, 20, so it took a while for the trees to warm up. We went to visit another maple syrup producer. They tap 2500. They said they were having a good year too. When we got back we went out to collect. To our surprise we collected 450 gallons of sap. We did not think there was that much sap, but it must have dripped pretty good after warming up. We bottled more too. A still lots of sugar sand. If we run through the filter press twice we get clear syrup. Its more work, but worth it. We boiled until about 1:00 am.
