Approaching the end of the season

With the warm weekend coming up, one might be tempted to call it quits on Saturday April 6th. I know I thought about it, however the forecast looks as though we could get some ideal conditions next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.   I am going to wait to see if this forecast plays out.  A good sap run at the end of the season can make an average season change to an above average or excellent season.   It froze in Taylors Falls last night so depending on the sap run today we will collect what we have and cook it before the warm weekend.   Sap will not keep well in temperature above 50 and must be cooked immediately.  The trees do not look like they are getting larger and to bud stage so I am hopeful we have a little more season left next week.
