There is big low pressure system to the south so our weather is cool and cloudy.   Low is 37 and high is about 47 so it’s not conducive to sap production. Production to date is 1,089 gallons of syrup made with 43,681 gallons of sap.  The trees are not ready to turn yet -  there is no snow on the ground but there is still ice on the pond in the Harmon Woods so the  frogs will not be croaking for awhile.    Yesterday Jim and Dave picked up 319 gallons of bag sap using the homewoods pickup tractor and then filling the Schwan’s truck by the grain bins.   We also bottled 42 gallons of Grade B syrup for our customers that like the strong maple taste.  It’s supposed to freeze after the  storm for 2 nites so we should get more sap since all of the tap holes are still fresh.
