The warmer weather has taken out most of the snow and the frost. I am hopeful with the forecast in the next week that we make our average syrup production. Our two church groups have 2500 pails out there and we are patiently waiting. We have made about 140 gallons of syrup so far and have cooked twice. It froze here last night but just barely, so we might get something today.
Be careful when cooking hot syrup, there are 3 ways to get seriously burned: Fire, Steam, and hot syrup. I was burned by steam 3 days ago so, be careful around the evaporators.
