I want to be a bamboo farmer

Hung out with a buddy of mine at his property down in Clover. He’s got all sorts of bamboo growing down there. He even has an interesting black stalked variety. Funny how so many people consider bamboo to be a menace and want it off their property and he’s doing his damnedest to get it to grow.

I think bamboo is cool as hell, it’s like the soy bean of building materials. It helps with erosion, you can build with it, you can eat it, it’s decorative, it regenerates in a year rather than 30 and costs a fraction of the cost. Maybe I need a bamboo plantation.
