In the last week we've more than doubled our crop. As of last night we've filled drum #95. It's still a far cry from a full crop for us - where we end up all depends upon the weather over the next couple of days.
We finished the weekend with Barrel number 29 which is about 15% of a crop for us in an average year. The sap did not run much Saturday or Sunday. We’re optimistic that the next couple of days will bring some excellent sugaring weather.
The story of this sugaring season may come down to the sugar content of the coming sap flows. Why you ask? Because there is a direct correlation between how much sap it takes to make a gallon syrup and the sugar content of the sap from which it’s being made.
