We have not had a freeze in over a week but the vacuum keeps the sap running. The signs of spring are everywhere, and its only a matter of time until the trees stop. It is supposed to freeze Thursday and Friday nights so it could give us a nice boost to end the season. We are getting pretty tired and run down but we will take all we can get. I climbed Mt. Mansfield and skied down early Sunday morning before working all day, that certainly does not help, but even in the busy season it is important to get a few hours away.
On another note, my personal recommendation for syrup this year is fancy grade. It is super super good tasting this year!!!!
