This week Jason has been helping a friend plant sugarcane.
Acres and acres of cane.
The planting crew likes to start at 6 am, and it's all planted by hand.
Jay brought some home to plant. Why not experiment? We need something more interesting than a dead hydrangea in this bed.
This is the cane.
This is the joint of the cane.
This is the new root growth from the joint of the cane.
Helen sucked on a piece of peeled cane, which kept her busy all evening. I had visions of her impaling her pharynx. You know...don't run with a sucker in your mouth...don't run with a scissors...don't walk around and go up and down stairs with sugar cane in your mouth.
This cane is supposed to get very, very tall, so Helen will have an unending supply of the sweet treat.
