By a very lucky coincidence, my city has curbside pickup of yard debris twice a year, and tomorrow is pickup day! All my bamboo branches can disappear tomorrow morning, if I get them bundled up with twine today. I wonder if I have twine, or can I use wool? They specify “natural rope”. I think wool should count. Anyway, this also means I should go back and finish trimming the two bamboo clumps. This means going behind the clumps, which means dealing with whatever is back there. Hopefully it is just a lump of bark. Hopefully. I mean, I really really really hope that is all it is. But whatever, I have to deal with it. I will channel my farm-living-pioneer-Little-House-on-the-Prairie fantasy self and just deal with it. Soon.
