tapping trees for that sweet sweet syrup!
« on: August 26, 2019, 03:29:46 am »

HEY STS! anybody out there tap trees? been wanting to try this, but need more info..
been reading conflicting reports on when to tap, some say late summer threw winter,
some say springtime, just started reading on the subject.. Any good info appreciated.

ive read in a magazine article black walnut tree has syrup like maple but nuttier flavor, and more rare/valuable,
then i was wondering about pecan trees, i have lots of pecan trees that don't make many nuts.. turns out YES!
