pretty - almost looks like a wild grass. who knew?
Sweet picture! LOLI've seen fields of sugar cane before, it looks like a 15 foot tall lawn grown out of control! If I remember correctly Sugar Cane is a member of the grass family.
"sweet pricture", You're a funny, funny man Paul! LOL
Fourty varieties? You must have bought the Big Book!The pic made me think of the phrase on an old sugar sack "C&H pure cane sugar from Hawaii"
How old are you?? LOLThat's where it all started from Parker. The first commercial cane fields in Hawaii were started in 1835. They still grow some there but not much just because of the high land prices now and what they have to pay in wages compared to other parts of the world.It is interesting to see them burn it off though, lots and lots of smoke and ash downwind. You don't want to be downwind when they are burning! We saw them burning a couple of cane fields the first time we were on Maui. We didn't know what they were doing at the time but the locals were quick to fill us in.
from Hawaii...grown in the sun! When you cook when you bake-for goodness sake make it C&H-C&H, pure care sugar that's the one!! Okay, now I'll have that tune in my head all day :) THANKS--oh, I was just a baby when that was a "hit"...bwahhhhhh
Now I'm going to be singing that song! LOL I better go turn on the Hawaiian music instead.
Ron, All I will say is 'Old Enough'! And I sure want to have a lot more Birthdays before I get old!lolI have seen them burning the sugar cane fields in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Makes 'Big Smoke' for sure, but doesn't last long!Val!Good for you, you remembered all the catchy little tune!
I think you should start farming sugar cane in your ranch.
Never knew that's how they looked like. Thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful weekend. =)
