The saps buckets are up! Can spring be far behind? The stately old maples that line our road get the traditional metal buckets. Plastic lines snake through the woods and drip into tanks near the road in less accessible spots. We use milk jugs. I’ve seen almost every kind of container used to catch the precious sap, even plastic bags. It doesn’t matter. It all means spring.
