Any of you folks ever planted sweet sorghum?  I’ve helped my grandpa cook it for years but am getting ready to start planting some at my place and build my own cooker. I’m just curious to see everyone else’s setup if y’all do it.

No sir, but I'm tagging in with interest.

I helped my grandfather cut cane (sugar cane) at his farm in the early 1960's in South MS. He took it to a mill for processing but us kids weren't allowed in on any of that.

We sure ate a lot of sugar cane though. 🙂

I, unfortunately, must live vicariously through the pics you guys post for now.

I had surgery on my ankle last week (Tendons and ligaments reattached, bone removed, and some brand spanking new titanium!).

I still hope to get some tomatoes and bell peppers in the ground eventually.

Thankfully there's a Farmer's market just down the road (Dixie Lee).


So I'm counting on you guys to post pics!


Getting old sucks!

Thank you @Sleep profit.

Parts just wear out and it takes longer to mend.

I did a fair amount of remodeling over the past couple of years with the "Aging in place" concept in mind.

It came in handy sooner than I anticipated! LOL

I should have installed an outdoor chair lift to the garden. 🤔
