Sap's running + we're boiling!

Woohoo!  Sap ran well all day and Scott's doing the "priming" boil right now.  

 

That means we put around 150 gallons of sap into the evaporator, light the fire and boil for about 4 to 5 hours.  At that point, the evaporator is ready for the season and we'll start making maple syrup.

 

 Don't know at this point how much sap we'll get.  Last I heard, it was slowing and should stop over night with the cold temperatures.  Will update later!
