Any suggestions for the bamboo?
Eat it?  :-D  Seriously, the young shoots are edible.......(sorry)

Seriously, bamboo is a horrible problem, as you know.  The only way to stop it is via a physical barrier, dug down at least 24".  Some can even get under that!  I've seen the huge bamboo groves down in Georgia - no wonder the old TV shows always showed boys with bamboo fishing poles!

Useless trivia fact #1:

Bamboo grows on every continent except for Antarctica.

Why do we need to know this?  Not sure.
