Sap stopped running Tuesday 4/16. We were hoping for it to continue after the rainstorm but it wasn’t in the cards.  Jason confirmed with us this morning that Pittmans were not processing any more sap. I put out the notice to the WW owners that we need to detap and clean the tanks.  Today Jim and I picked up the 3 Harmon tanks and cleaned them. We also cleaned the homewoods transfer tank and delivery tank and put them away in the lower level of Jim’s shed.   I then pulled the spiles and cutoff the clear spiles for all taps that were on the bill hill / south hill 3/4″ drain line.  Probably about 200 taps and most were already dried up.  Tomorrow Quinn, Brad and I will finish pulling the Homewoods taps.   Saturday we will pull all of the spiles in the Harmon Woods.
