We're in NB, and have a fair bit of wooded land. To my chagrin, all of our maples that I've seen so far seem to be red maples, not a single sugar one in sight... They're still making sap (being tapped as I type), but it sure would be nice to start a sugar maple grove. Would anyone have a stand of sugar maples near them and would be up for sending some seeds in regular post? I'm not sure what I can offer back (except for red maple seeds ), but if there's something specific you want, ask away, maybe I can get it...
Sorry, I don't have seeds, but I too want to plant a sugar maple grove in the near future. In the meantime I've been tapping any old maple I can with excellent results. Even what I was told was a "Manitoba maple" by a neighbor, who also informed me I was wasting my time.
My brother and I designed and built a rocket stove evaporator that is showing some very promising results. It gets rediculously hot. I'll have to post some pics or videos after more testing.
Thanks! We're off-grid, so electricity is free (and no added CO2!), if it's sunny out So we just use a nice heavy-bottom pot on an induction burner outside of our house. The red maples do work quite well so far, but I'll keep dreaming about my sugar grove!
