The colors of spring

This morning the taps were dry, the buckets empty. The season is slowly coming to a close. We lined up the harvest, minus the half gallon we have already lovingly handed off to friends and family. Estimated yield is four and a half gallons. The girls want pancakes for breakfast.

The light cup in front is from the first batch. The middle was gathered during a warming trend. The dark cup on the left is from yesterday's stash of two cups. Sugaring is jam packed full of science.
