How Sweet (And Colorful) It Is Princeton, Massachusetts Sugarmakers often use eye-catching plastic sap buckets in lieu of the traditional galvanized metal type. There is some controversy surrounding them, as plastic may only last a few years. However, plastic is light weight, and will not rust. Additionally, you can see the sap through them.

Oh, what a time. As a Mainer, I am very keen about all things maple.
Wow! All in harmony and balance! Amazing and beautiful! Thank’s for share Julie.
Have a wonderful time!
Thanks for sharing these interesting pictures. Do you know they keep the deer away? I planted three sugar maple trees, and the deer licked and tore off the bark, killing two trees. I put a wire fence around the third one and it survived.
I did not know that! Cool! Sounds like you must have a wonderful yard!
Very neat to see!
You teach me something new every time I read your blog. I had no idea about the buckets. Great pictures!
Thanks. I’m so glad you liked it. Wishing you a good week!
Thank you! Hope you are having a good week. 🙂
New to us! Have heard of this technique but never seen photos. A nice share, thanks from a couple of Hoosiers 😉 !
Great photos and so interesting that the sap can be collected in this way.
I think both the old and new technologies have positive sides. Surely, the new is easier for sugarmakers!
