Sprouting Sugarcane

In our country, where sugar is one of the main export commodities, many homes across Jamaica have sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum) growing in their gardens. During my childhood, we also had sugarcane growing in our yard; and even our closest neighbour has a thriving sugarcane patch in her backyard. sugar cane growing in back yard gardenAt the start of this month, we planted a few sugar cane stalks, and in just two weeks they have all sprouting new shoots. How wonderful! By next year this time, we should be reaping and enjoying our own sugarcane.sprouting sugar cane (Saccharum officinarum) sprouting sugar cane (Saccharum officinarum) sprouting sugar cane (Saccharum officinarum)
