Checked with a friend of mine here in SW NH and sap was running here today as well, he is probably boiling tonight. We have a storm due in tomorrow, rain and snow, maybe quite a bit so it is a short lived window here but you are right it is coming!!

how much sap do you collect? Do you then market the syrup or just for your own use?

If I do really well I can do about 10 gal of syrup a year, sell about half and use the rest for gifts during the holiday seasons.

Good luck with the sap collection. I hope it's a good year for it. I'm not sure how a hard cold winter would effect the sap production.
