Today started sunny. Got up to 48. This afternoon turned cloudy. At 9:15 am we headed out with the tractor and collecting tank to pick up whatever sap was there. As we emptied the pail we took it off the tree and turned it upside down to drain and dry out. We ended up collecting 350 gallons of sap. That makes 3070 gallons of sap for the season. We started boiling at 2:30 pm. By 11:30 pm we had 200 gallons processed. And then we bottled 21 quarts yet tonight.
