Buckets for ?????????????

Mom decided that we were going out! The big snow was over and we needed some milk. So I’m in the backseat of the car watching as we head into Chardon and I hear Mom say “YES! Spring must be on it’s way!” and guess what I see?! Buckets on the maple trees.



How did they get there? Here’s some hints on how:










Why are they there? Do you know? Do you need a hint?

  1. One of my very favorite treats comes on the mornings my mom makes pancakes. When I sit in my spot, she brings me just a taste, actually 3 little bites. Have you any idea how good pancakes taste to me? They are soooooooooooo good!!
  1. Here’s another hint if you can complete the analogy: Buckets are to maple trees as ______________ is to pancakes.

Thanks to the Fifth Grade Webwriters for giving me the idea to use an analogy as a hint. They did lots of fun analogies on their blogs. Be sure to read them! They gave all the answers! I’m not!

Can you complete my analogy and explain the buckets on the trees?

This made me think of a time I saw people harvesting sap from the trees during winter when I lived in Illinois. It was so cool to take a closer look!! Do you know how to make sryup? plus the answer to analogie is syrup!!

Tyler said...

Your writing made me think that I should move to Ohio!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It sounds so fun and your mom must be one fun ladie, she certainly sounds like it. Hey, you never told us what kind of milk. I also think that is a very good analagie and isn't the answer syrup.

Chelsea said...

Woof! Woof! Hi Harley, my name is Chelsea and your writing made me wish we could manufacture our own syrup here in Georgia! That looks like such a wonderful but hard working experience to make the tasty syrup I eat almost every morning, but what I really want to know is do they use the same ingrediants in diffrent types of brands such as "Aunt Jemima"

olijah said...

I discovered that syrup doesn`t come stight from trees. This made me think of how it`s made, have you ever saw it. it comes on Discovery channel.

jenai said...

I discovered that anolgy that was given which is bucket is maple tree as to syrup is to pancakes. This also makes me think of how the tree is being cut down and how we need it for a sepcific reason. Do you know the reason why we need trees in are lives?

stacy said...

jesus said...

Hi harley I wish I understood why they use the buckets,because I have never heard about this that you wrote on your blog.I think that you are a good blogger because this was a great blog.
I have a question to ask you have you taste the syrup from the tree?
I think I might come and blog to you Bye Harley.

jermaine said...

Hi,my name is Jermaine.They put the nails in the tree to open a spot so maple syrup can fill the bucket. This is important because this is where our syrup comes from. Bucket is to maple tree as maple syrup is to pancakes.

Kevin said...

Hey Harley my name is Kevin,your writing made me think about if they use any other uses for tree sap. Oh and I would like to answer your analogy, It is surup that goes to pancakes.Here's one for you, Cats are to tuna as dogs are to______. Harley your posts make me rollover and beg for more.Bye!


P.S. thanks for metioning the Webwrithes from J.H.House. I will make a post about you!

Shaia said...

Hi Harley,
This is Shaia.
I love your post. I don't understand why Georgia can't produce syrup or sap from our trees. It looks interesting though. I would love to go to Chardon to learn how to get sap from trees. Is it fun to do though? I know I said it looks intresting, but it looks like it could be a lot of work also. I really want to do it though. Well, have fun producing the sap and syrup. Send me some on Doggy Express!

jose juan said...

Nia said...

Hi Harley, I'm Nia This post reminded that Maple syrup comes from a tree. It's Weird how Maple syrup and other syrups are made from trees. Do you Know why Maple syrup comes from trees? I really want to know! Is maple syrup okay for a dog to eat? I have one and I wanted to know!

Leslie said...

Hey Harley!
Your blog left me wondering
are there maple trees here in
Georgia.If there were I wonder
how it would change our satisfactories.

Chloe said...

This post made me think of how all the syrup I use and how I really never knew where it cam from. It's really cool to learn about how people in Ohio actually do that it's amazing. Well of coarse i'll say that because is the first time I heard about this. I wish they did stuff like that here in Georgia. It would be really intersting see someone do it up close. Was it really exciting for you the first tome you saw buckets on a maple tree?

alejandra said...

Hey Harley,
I wish I understood why this state can't produce any sap from our mapple trees. well any ways I loved your blog, and you sure have some interresting post to read!! I sometimes wish I could read all of them but I always run out of time. Well I have to go now BYE!!

Cassidy said...

Hi Harley,
This makes me think of a time when I ate maple syrup straight from a factory before. It tasted so good. I can tell that Maple Syrup is very common were you live. I love the brand "AUNT JEMIMA" it is good. Thanks for also mencioning Fifth Grade Webwriters on your blog. It really means alot to us. I hope sometime you can come and comment on my blog. I have some wonderful things on there. Hope to here from you soon.

Samantha said...

Your writing made me think that we should start making syrup instead of going to buy it at Wal-Mart, and that way we could save more money!

matthew said...

WOOF Harley
This is important because if all these people didn't make syrup from maple trees syrup wouldn't go to factories, and if it doesn't go to factories it won't become good, and if it doesn't become good it won't be made into my favorite type of syrup. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH. Sorry for freakin' out. Well see ya in Ohio when I get money to buy tickets for the airplane, and find a place to stay in Ohio and meet you some place. Again bye

Aaron said...

Hay my name is Aaron I like maple syrup and pancaks. My frind livs up there. Thay have mapel trees. Thay make syrup it is riley good. I have a dog name is Reble. he like pancaks to. My frind sends me mapel syrup.

joseph said...

Your wrighting made me think that we should move to Ohio! Have you ever helped get mapple syrup befor? Plus the anser to the analagie is syrup.

Jenny said...

I wish I would understand why they put buckets on the trees. Maybe there are buckets on the trees because Spring is coming.Maybe who knows??? Well I wish you could tell that more easier? But I have to goo!! Comment me later! Woof! Woof!

lakeidrea said...

Hi my name is LaKeidrea and I enjoy reading your post.You can write me back to and I like what you wrote on your post I wish that I was there.Are you a german sheperd? I never saw a dog like you please write me back and I am one of the people who did the analogies as an example house is to room just as buy is to spin.I enjoy speaking to a dog it`s so cool.

Erica said...

This made me think so that how they make syrup for the pancakes.
The answer to your analogy is syrup. There is a quetion for you: How did you learn to type?

darne said...

I didn`t know that syrup came from trees.It said that it took 20gall-ons to get 2gallons of syrup.That statement thougth me a lot.

Otavia said...

WoW Harly!! that was a wonderful post.I discovered that there were many different ways to take the syrup out of the trees.I just thought that when they take it out they stick in that thing. What is that thing called any way?I never knew that they sometimes use a vacume. That is so c00l.Well we have to go so bye.

P.s.-It is so c00l that you are a typing dog.

Araceli said...

Today I have descovered an enteresting things about sryup. Like where it is from and how you take of the trees and how you make it more sweeter with alot of suger in it. How did you learn to do all of that?

Tyler said...

I wonder why they put the syurp in a bacet or a bag.I always thought that the syurp was brown like it is in the bottle.

Polet said...

I wonder why people started to make syrup.Do you know why?Well, I think that this is interesting because we use the syrup for pancakes.

asia said...

This makes me thinkof every time I eat pancakes and syrup.It's seems cool to live in a state were almost everything is made fresh.I would have never known that syrup came from trees but now I do.Now everytime I take a bite of some pancakes and syrup i'll know that first you collect sap water then it boils in the sugar house then is finally filtered.Your blog is amazing but how do you learn to type and read yor comments?!

oralia said...

Harley It looks that you are really excited about spring. This is really good to hear. This made me think of when I was glad about spring. I really like spring because I like flowers alot. I like spring more then I like summer. I like more spring because is not the hot and in summer sometimes it get really hot.What is your favorite season Harley? Do you like flowers???

Jordan said...

Harley,
Your post made me think about moving so I can make maple syrup. That would be fun. Do you know why you can only make syrup there? I've got a great analogy for you: Syrup is to panckes as __________ is to hot dogs. Thank you for hyperlinking us. Well, have a great day!!

Autumn said...

This made me think of having some good food. I might need a good job so I can buy me some Maple Syrup. I porobly want to move down there so I can go to the factory where they make Maple Syrup. I hope you enjoy it. P.S That food looked good!!!! Woof Woof!!!!

joe said...

I dont understand why we cant make syrup in Georgia!!!!!I think its outrageous!!!!!I lovve eating blueberry pancakes in the morning!!!What are your favortie kinds of pancakes,Harley???!!!

Alejandra said...

I don't understand why Georgia can't produce maple syrup. I've never been to Ohio. Someday I wish I could go to Ohio,but I don't have any relative living there. So I'm not that excited about going to Ohio someday. Were you born in Ohio? Or did you just grow up there.

Desiree said...

I sometimes wonder why there are buckets on the trees. But know I know why. They get maple syrup from those trees and they need the buckets to collect all that tasty syrup YUM! Without those trees and buckets, we won't be eating any of that yummy syrup. And I answered your anology. It wasn,t that hard. the answer is Maple Syrup! I knew that because I like maple syrup on my pancakes too. To bad it has a lot of sugar. if it didn't I would put maple syrup on everything!

Ana said...

I wonder why we can't make
maple syrup in Georgia. Your post made me very hungry for pancakes. I could just imagine them espaily with the maple syrup. Oh. and the answer for the analogie is syrup. Do buy the syrup or do you do it?

jennifer said...

Hello Harley, how are you? Your post let me wondering do you like syrup with pancakes. Have you ever seen some one doing syrup? I have never seen it because people over here don't make, I think so. By the way the answer for your analogie is syrup. Bye!

Juana said...

This makes me thing of me eating in the mornning.Another thing to consider is that when I told my teacher about that if we can make some in our contry she siad ''no'',because we dont have the right whether and the right trees.

P.S I will realy like it if you could commint me On J.H.House.

giancarlo said...

I wonder why syrup can only be made in that area? the answer to your analogy is syrup. If you go to my blog you could see my analogy. my blogs name is'gians sand grains of thought'. is it usually cold in Chicago

jorge said...

]This writting made me think of working at a syrup factory it sounds fun and i like to have fun and eat pancakes.Oh and the answer to the anologie is syrup.

javier said...

Dear,Harly

I discovered that they make syrup in Ohio.I didn,t know they made syrup in Ohio.Hey can you figure out my analogy?Food is to eat as dog is to....

Woof!Woof!

justin said...

I wonder why people like maple syrup? My brother loves maple syrup. He loves it so much that he picks it up,and drinks it. Of course I take it away from him. Sometimes I think he can't live with out it the way he drinks it. Do you like Maple syrup? I like Maple syrup only on my pancakes.
I think is most intresting how people take sap from trees,and put it throgh process.Most prople don't really think about the people how makes it for us. I was one one of those people, but now I apprecate those people now.

P.S. Does your dog loves syrup?

Gizela said...

Hi Harly,my name is Gizela and this post made me think about how many people eat pancakeswhith surup. surup is one of my favorite things to eat in the mornigsalso eggs with grits. What is another kind of food you like to eat in the mornings. Oh YES!, the answer to your problom is surup. Can you solve my problom snow is to winter as flowers is to _________ ,when you get the answer comment me the answer and I'll type toyou and tell you if you are right or not.

Jonathan A said...

I also think that is a very good analagie and isn't the answer syrup.it comes on Discovery channel.

terion said...

Hi Harly,you have tought me a somthing quick because that was how they produced pure sap.I still dont understand how the sap is produced from a tree.I have somthing to ask you.If sugar is to sweet tree is to ___________....

Busayo said...

Hello Harly ;how are you in Ohio. I am really fine in Georgia.I wonder why you cant get syrup in Georgia.Also I wish I could understand why syrup or should I say sap comes out of only trees.This made me form an opinion.Why does our goverent
sells syrup made of too much sugarfor less money,and real maple syrup for more money.I thought the governt is trying to stop the fat that I and every one else.

selena said...

I can relate to this because in the morning sometimes my mom makes panckaes with syurp.Ha,do you like only syurp with panckaes???????

ashailyn said...

Hi Harley, I love mapple syrup, because it is a delightful tasty sause that tastes good on pancakes, sausages, and more. I think it's really cool how they make it. I sometimes have to be careful not to waste it on the table cause it makes a bigggg mess. Byyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

Brittney said...

Hi,Harley
I found myself thinking,why Chardon,Ohio is the only.I also found myself thinking.Who is your mayor and who is YOUR president because your state is beatuiful.In conculsion I wonder why mapel is so deliousious and why is it so exspensive.
P.S can you get a bucket like yours
thanks wooff woff
