I took the photos on an Amish farm from the side of the road. According to what I heard on the news, maple sugaring is very early this year. The first photo is straight out of the camera the second is edited. Once I boiled down maple sap & just about took the wallpaper off the kitchen walls with all the steam. I had a huge pot of sap & ended up with no syrup. Don't ever attempt to make your own syrup unless you can boil it outside.
