The Deck Is Done!

There were going to be expletives but at the last minute I got it together. It is a lot of work to build a 20' x 24' deck, and I am glad it is done. And this one came out pretty solid. In case you are wondering why it sits where it sits, it is covering what would otherwise be a dangerous, some would say attractive, nuisance.

A deck will be much nicer. And when the front door is moved around to the front, and the ramp/path you see behind it continues on to the house, the deck will suddenly be in a much more normal spot.

Containing Bamboo

Those who know I grow bamboo as a hobby sometimes ask me about how to control the spread of bamboo. The answer depends a lot on your environment... If you have a short growing season and cold winters, odds are good that you will be more concerned with getting it to spread than preventing it.

But for those who need to know, I recently delved into the world of WikiHow to write an article on this:

Happy bamboo growing.
