Hey Rob, the sugar cane done pretty good. I haven't had a chance to do the sugar thing. In the future, 2, 3, 4, years I'm going to fence in a bottom in the front field. A friend of mine planted some in the 70's a few hundred yards up in the same bottom. He said you never seen the like of sugar cane. He made good money off of it too. 10 cents a stalk, you pick.

He was getting either 50 cents or a dollar towards the end. I'm thinking the stalks I bought were about $2 apiece. I had some type of borer worm get in a few of my stalks. It's still quite the learning experience for me. Like apples. Growing up we had apple trees and I don't remember the birds being an issue. My young trees probably made 3 or 4 dozen this year. I watched through out the summer as one after one were being eaten through by birds. I finally got my busy but out there and put screen wire around the last 3 or 4 apples I had left.
