More on bamboo...my Beautiful Wildlife Garden guest post
I recently discovered a really neat blog, Beautiful Wildlife Gardens, dedicated to the pursuit of creating nature-friendly yards and gardens. I thought they might be interested in my struggles with the invasive bamboo trying to take over my new yard...and they were! Thus announcing my first Guest Blog Post!

Today while I was browsing the kitchenware section of my favorite “big box store,” I picked up an item which announced that it was made from bamboo—“the fastest growing plant on earth.”
I have no doubt that the product I was holding was probably friendlier to the environment than one made of wood. Still, I could not help but shudder a bit as I returned it to the shelf. Because I have had the deep misfortune to have recently purchased a house whose backyard has been colonized by a non-native, invasive species: bamboo.
