After the sap has been gathered, it rides in the sled back to the sugar house.

Good morning, Leia. Thank you, always, for your wonderful comments. Yes, the family usually helps when it's a small operation like this. The kids often love getting out in the woods and sharing the work. This child asked that his parents wait to gather the sap until he came home from school. He's wearing the bicycle helmet because he rode to the sugarbush on his bike and was so eager to start collecting sap that he forgot to take the helmet off. You have a great weekend, too. Say hi to Luna from me. -Brattcat

Another great photo. I'll bet that's the way it's been done for many, many years!

I thought that looked like a bicycle helmet, but thought nah, can't be.

The b+w gives it a look like it could have been taken yesterday, or many years ago. Isn't pure maple syrup the best.

We are on the same photo theme, Brattcat, you in the country and I in the city. Your picture here is timeless . . . I think the b+w helps make it so. The bike helmet is a great story element.

As an aside, I so look forward to your insightful comments . . . you have a gift not only for sharing Brattleboro but also for commenting on the rest of the world. Thanks for sharing your gifts.
