Wow, the trees are running like crazy today! When I did the morning feeding the trees were not doing anything, but this afternoon, these pictured buckets were full, and one of the trees down in the woods has a 4 gallon bucket on it, and it had been running over for some time! We emptied all the buckets tonight when Ed got home and we ended up with 25 gallons of sap!! and that is just today since it warmed up! Will they run all night? I don't know, they have sometimes in the past, when conditions are right. I hope not. It will take me all day to cook 25 gallons because I only have one stove to cook on. Last year we borrowed a friends deep frying turkey cooker, but we don't have it this year. So we will just have to do what we can do!
