When I looked it up on the internet people were tapping them, I think they said it's not as sweet. But they were saying it was good. Definitely better than the high fructose corn syrup my wife and kids like lol.

 

Huh... I didn't know that, but since we have so many Sugar Maples here it's no wonder nobody here taps anything else.

 

And no, I have never heard of Birch beer, if I see it sometime I will try it though

The most common variety around here.

It's the most exciting part of the grow IMHO to see the hooks.

 

Next to that, me not killing them..LOL

 

Heh... true, that. There are just so many ways we can love our plants to death, and Ma Nature is always ready to "help"...

 

On a side note... the first three seedlings up were all presoaked in the water/fulvic acid mix. Still waiting for the ones soaked in reconstituted coconut water. It'll be interesting to see if there's any difference in both germination time and growth depending on which solution the seeds were soaked in first.

 

Have a great weekend all!

Looks like you started with really healthy seeds Guru... One of the first of my chiles to pop was your Yellow Brainstrain. Cheers!10b671a2298d51a15d804a7a41d75d71.jpg

Sonofa gun! The CARDI Yellow Scorpion has just languished all week. The first two chiles fully up here are an MoA Bonnet and one of Guru's Yellow Brainstrains. 70fe54d7af77564cb20fe69f2f42f032.jpga1ccd7c10b5a5d4e5ac36b6a8ddd2490.jpg

U have taps on some maples? We have solver maples here, I've been meaning to tap one or two

I don't think you'll get sweet sap from Silver Maples guy... Other than Sugar Maples the only other tree I've heard of people tapping to make syrup is White Birch. Have you ever tried a soda called Birch Beer?
I don't do any tapping myself, but I have a few friends that I trade with... hot sauce for Maple syrup. [emoji3]
