The cooler months are the best time to attack large projects outside. This winter one project was cutting down another huge stand of running bamboo, that during summer, would shoot up all over the place. It was a mammoth job to cut it all down. Some we mulched with the help of Kim and Fiona. The mulcher packed it in and so we burned the rest. Now all that's left of it is this satisfyingly small pile of ashes. We'll have to keep at it for a good few years yet before it's finally all dead, but the worst part is over. Good riddance!
