I got this e-mail three weeks ago:
Just wondering if you’d post a current picture of your sugar cane patch.
I’ve been busy, plus it slipped my mind, until I was out in the yard this last weekend and went, “Hey, I need to shoot a picture of the sugarcane for that gal that wrote me!”
So… here it is:
The tallest canes are likely 5′ or so in height. We’ve gotten a few days of rain so they should really shoot for the sky now. It’s also time for me to throw on some chicken manure… just haven’t gotten around to that yet.
The bed isn’t as thick as I would like this year, but we’ll still have plenty we can use for cane syrup by November.
Anyone else growing sugar cane? Got a progress report?
