Buckets are Up

We upgraded the buckets significantly this year. The metal buckets were old, second hand, and I hear some old metal buckets might use a lead based solder. I don’t know if those do but the noxious idea is enough, they’re out. Maybe we’ll keep a few that look newer and in good shape. So microplastics it is! We tried aluminum buckets and they aren’t practical at all, but the few plastic ones we had worked well. Esther & I went to hang 50 of them in our usual tapping spots. Robin wasn’t able to hike this treacherous terrain with crutches, and he was very much bummed to miss out on the tapping action. It’s a big deal here.

The cat came with us, she too can tell Spring is around the corner.
