Yesterday was the first day we heard the frogs croaking which confirms that the soil temperatures have risen enough to end the sugaring season even though there are some ideal sap days forecasted through next week. . The cleanup of the equipment continues. - Jim and Dave picked up the three 1500 gallon tanks and accessory equipment (ladders, brushes, pump) from Patnode Valley and brought them back to Jim’s farm for cleaning. Dave goes inside the tanks and uses a pressure washer to thoroughly clean the tanks. Jim also finished up washing the sap bag holders in his dishwasher. We are on track to complete the cleanup by the end of this coming weekend.
