2020 Season Closure

February 24, 2021

I'm writing this at the start of the 2021 season. I can barely remember the details of last season except that it was unremarkable but successful. The COVID-19 virus became a reality for everyone in March and I had mostly solo boils. I started working-from-home on March 13th, and pictured below is cleanup day on March 14th.

Most seasons have been a tricky balance of timing... Gathering sap before or after work. Finding time on busy weekends to boil. Working with the weather. The good news is that since I am always at home, a lot of the pressure is off and I will have a lot more flexibility to get things done. It will also be nice to have something else to focus on.
