We wrapped up maple season on April 5 because of weather and sap boiling fatigue.
Numbers for the season:
12 1/2 pint jars of syrup
35 gallons of sap
80 lb of propane
We beat the Connecticut sugar bush price price for 1/2 pints so we are likely to do it again. Next year I’m going to look for a more efficient evaporator because it took forever to boil and I will need to be able to finish a boil at nights after work.
The day after maple season, I planted four raspberry canes on the side of the house.
