…to the French Food Festival!
During the drive, watch out for cane-hauling trucks and slow-moving tractors, as the sugarcane grinding season is now in full swing. Gustav and Ike delayed the harvest, so farmers are making up for lost time and taking advantage of good weather.
Hopefully, we’ll have some purple chewing cane to gnaw on this weekend…fewer people than ever plant a few stalks of chewing cane in their gardens. I guess I’ll have to carve out a corner of my backyard for chewing cane–if I can’t find any locally, I can always order some via the Internet.
