Rain protection for Sugar Maple spile

protecting sugar maple spile from rain

We had a problem with the bag protecting our Sugar Maple spile from the rain.

Anna fixed it this morning after dumping out the rain/sap mix, but when I was going to the Post Office this afternoon I noticed the bag had shifted and the drip was being guided by the plastic onto the ground.

A piece of Reflectix is rigid enough to keep the bag from touching the drip area and the bag helps to keep it in place.
