Sugarcane!

Me and Shisa looking at the Sugarcane as we drive by.

I thought I'd share a couple photos of the local sugarcane growing.  I've watched it grow from seed to around 7ft tall!  My guess is within the next couple weeks they will have the machinery in to harvest the sugarcane.  The other photo I uploaded shows a couple farmers out tending to their field. 

I would have to say the majority of what I see is all done by hand.  Which is very different to what I am use to, since most of the things I see is done by machinery in the States.  Granted the amount of land they have here is no where near as much as a typical farmer in the States.  Additionally, there is at least one farmer that I see almost everyday that rides his Rascal scooter to his field!  One of these times I'll have to stop my SMX and take a few shots of when they come in to harvest the sugarcane.
