on Sunday March 1st we had a good crew to work the woods.  The sun came out about 11am so was just nice enough to get things done.  the temperature was in the mid 20's but sunny.  We worked in the woods from about 11:30 to 3:30.      vinnie, Brandon & boys finished up the home woods spiles,    Mike and Eric worked on the Harmon Woods disposable spiles - just a line or two left on the  south side.  Brent, Brad, Kevin and myself put in the new 400' black line and also redid the tube  lines east of the slough.  The black line will be a big improvement to increase the sap flow from that section.  Pittman better have 2 trucks ready this year.  Jim bought another 1000 clear spiles so we have them on hand.   Next weekend we will plan to putin the 2 Patnode Valley tanks and drain line. Plus finish connecting the tube lines to the new black line.   Things are lining up to tap the weekend of March 14th. Jim got a text from Jeff Hartung putting out a call for all tappers this coming weekend.  i would think it will be tough tapping frozen trees though.  A Dan Bauer stopped to pickup 2 gallons late afternoon plus chilkoot took $192 worth and CHC $321 this past week.  Stockholm gardens wants to place an order so we are getting low on syrup. We will start working next saturday as soon as it's above 25 degrees.
