Tomatoes growing in the same container as my Black Bamboo. When I planted the bamboo, I mixed in some compost in with the soil and several months later... voila! Tomato plants... I'll be keeping them for sure.
My running bamboo is shooting like crazy, This particular variety is Phylostachys dulcis 'Sweetshoot Bamboo.' This bamboo is known for its exceptional edible bamboo shoots. At the nodes, normally there are tender branchlets. In this case the lower branchlets were nibbled off... slugs, rats or do I have a Panda Bear hiding out in my backyard? A mystery indeed...
Friday, I started some Phylostachys nigra 'Black Bamboo' plants to get them ready for next year. This continued on Saturday. It is dirty work, but it's what I love.
Even the cat was taking in the beautiful day....
And since this weekend is a mixed bag, here is what we can expect Sunday, but no worries, more beautiful May days are ahead, no doubt.
