The weather has warmed up. Audrey noticed this raccoon hanging around our sap buckets this afternoon. She tried chasing it away by banging a spoon in a pan. It only ran up our maple tree and then took a nap. It is still enjoying its cozy napping space.
While it slept, we made sure all the lids were tight on the sap buckets and then put a heavy brick on each one. We do not want a nosy raccoon to ruin the sap we collected!
