Okay, so I got some funny comments when I twittered last Thursday about my corn getting blown over by the wind. We do have corn. However, it’s just a small garden we planted at Hayden’s request including: corn, cucumbers, squash, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, okra, strawberries and carrots.

On to what you didn’t know about me: I grew up working weekends on a small family farm. It varied in size, but one thing never changed: our family grew Sugar Cane and made Cane Syrup every year for the past 100 years. It’s a pretty crazy tradition and it honestly built a ton of character in my life. Click here to see the pics of the Whitehead’s Syrup Making.

Oh well. Enjoy – and get a good laugh!

    Today, I was working in my carport when the gate alarm sounded indicating that someone was coming up the driveway. I looked up and saw a man standing at the closed gate. He looked like he wanted to talk to me so I made the long walk down the driveway to see what he wanted. He told me that he noticed my sugar cane which I recently started growing and wanted me to know that he also grew it. I learned that he has spent a lifetime involved in cane and syrup making. He gave me some very good advice about harvesting, particularly the grapple that attaches to the tractor. So when I got a chance, I searched the internet to see more about his operation and I found this site which seems to be connected and I wanted to let you know what happened. He told me his name, but it escapes me.

    Craig, had to be my grandfather – although there is a list of family that it could be! Let me know if we can help you in any way.
