Rainstorm
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 9:55 am

Beautiful sunny weather, no wind and a high of 65 yesterday changed to a steady temperature of 50 and thunderstorms today and forecasted to be cloudy/showery tomorrow with highs in the 40’s.  Jason picked up 881 ga11ons from Harmons yesterday so we now have 2,019 gallons of syrup.  Jim turned on the vacuum today so we’ll see if we get more sap or have the frogs signalled that the season is over.  The frogs started croaking yesterday  in Jim’s manure lagoon that faces south. When the frogs in the Harmon Woods pond wake up then we know for sure the soil temperatures have risen and the season is over. 

We have scheduled removing taps/spiles from the trees in the homewoods on Friday.  The sun will return by then and the rain will have woken up the plants.   Quinn and I will start Friday morning and be joined by Brad in the afternoon.   If there is no sap running at Harmons the next two days we’ll start detapping that woods on Saturday.
