Well, temps about 35F today. Have had hard rain for the last 24hrs. The sap buckets only had about a gal. of sap in them, but been setting in them way too long again. We dumped a lot of yellowed sap on the ground, and brought about 1900gal to the saphouse.
The frost has been driven into the ground extreamly deep and all the rain just puddles on it or runs off if there is slope.
The pic is the corn field between the town road and saphouse. Pic was taken about 9:30 this morning. When I came home about 2:00 this afternoon the water was over the drawbar of the 440 and creeping over the road. It sin't going any where, as the field is pretty level. Lake Clinton Camp is just getting bigger. The bottom is still frozen and the PUs had no trouble at all crossing the lake. (freebe car wash, HeHe). There was also lots of water standing on the back field beside the bush. I have really clean tires on the 440 tonight. HeHe. There are also geese everywhere now, and have been seeing robins for a couple weeks.
The cousin decided to load the big evaporator, today for a test run, just in case the sap does start to run consistently. Talked to him about 5:00 and he said all was going well and might get a couple of batches of syrup off both evaporators, before the sap got too low in the storage tanks.
Onec we stop stoking wood to the evaporators, they will continue to consume another 300gal of sap during cooldown. If they are run too long before quitting, the pans can burn dry. (NOT GOOD)
Hopefully this comming week we can get some decent runs and make some syrup worthy of retail sales. I know many of you are ready for shipments, but we won't be shipping any until we make at least Medium Amber syrup. (NYS gradeing standard).

Almost time for water-wings & a snorkel for that tractor. If you get any more rain you're gonna have to quit farming that field and open up a Water Park. LOL!

Better than here, we ended up with 8-10 inches of wet heavy snow on top of the 3 inches of rain with NO frost left in the ground. Moving round bales and doing chores is a MUDDY mess! But that is normal spring time up here closer to the lake. Weatherman said you were supposed to get the snow in the higher elevations and south and east of here. guess he was spot on as normal. Guys around here are using ATV"s with real small tanks and just making lots of trips to get the sap out. Pipeline guys are just grinning.

Loren, Now we see why the flotation tires were a good idea, won't be long and you will need a air cleaner extension, LOL. Do you have a price set for the syrup this year? Would like a couple jugs again so I better get a check headed your way and I do not mind if it is dark, Rod

Loren,
Glad you have "flotation" tires on the front of the tractor to get through there. LOL Thanks for the pics. By the way, your 445CK in the shop is really starting to take shape. Looks like it is going to be a very nice tractor. If I may ask, what colors are you going to paint it? I can't wait to see it complete.

Kurt,
The cab and sheet metal will be desert sunset with with power red detailing. Wheels all power red, no silver. The loader will be power red with black or DB brown stripeing and decals on the boom. There will also be black strips, like the 70 series on each side of the hood with 445CK decals. The chasis is currently DB brown, which I like, but my son thinks that I should make that power red also. I still have time to change things. HeHe.
