Making Cane Syrup in Lower Alabama with Ben White

Happy (post) Thanksgiving!

Here’s the latest cane boil video I posted yesterday:

Though my YT viewers watch these syruping videos much less than my regular gardening videos, I am committed to documenting the process from multiple points of view and with a myriad of methods. This syrup boil with Ben was wonderful – great people!

If you think I’ll never stop it with the cane syrup, don’t worry – the season is almost over.

Yesterday I did some work on the new food forest project in between feasting. We planted multiple bare-root grape vines and a loquat tree. Today I’m headed over to Randall’s place to help him mill pine logs on his sawmill. My hope is to build a library in our house for our ridiculous collection of books.

Thanksgiving was wonderful. Though it was just our family, we greatly enjoyed it. Rachel and multiple children made pies, stuffing, a smoked turkey, sweet potato casserole with pecans, mashed potatoes and more. It was our first Thanksgiving on our new and final homestead, and we are so thankful to be here.

I woke up to the sound of this hymn playing:

And that really summed up our day.

Have a great weekend.
