Got all the tanks cleaned today.. I am ready to tap next weekend on the 23rd. No matter the weather forcast, that is the day that I am tapping! Boiled with a buddy that had about 450 gallons of sap last night. HE has vac and is just enough south of me that it ran well for him over 2.5 days. I figure that if he only got 450 gallons with vac and taps 900 taps that my 200 taps on gravity wouldnt produce much so I am holding off for another week. I am ready for the season to begin and to find out what a normal season has in store for me since my first season was last season and i only got 6 boils in and was done in mid March.
