What's happening?

58mm Chris King espresso tamper is my first Chris King product.

We had a nice sunset out back of the house a few days ago.

 Picture day last week.  Night before Ella and Maya wanted a pic with my old school pics.
 I did two boils this year and could have done a bunch more.  I got about one and two thirds gallon total.  Second boil yield was a gallon from about 25 gallons of sap.  Took it to 218F.  25 gallons took a little over one full tank of propane.
 I do the majority of the evaporating on the front porch with the turkey frying burner but finish up inside.
 Trees were bursting with sap.

 Getting sap out of the woods is hard when the sap is really flowing.
