Our cane patches are progressing nicely. This shot shows the Maces Creek field, some of which is producing seed heads already. The stalks at the battlefield cane patch are smaller, as they were planted later, but are doing well also.
Work on the blacksmith shop progresses well. Some very talented volunteers are helping. This will be a nice addition to the battlefield and Brashearville.
