You Know It's Going to Be a Good Day When It Starts with "Should I Bring a Machete?"

So, there's this stand of bamboo right where this sidewalk is being built in my city. This is where I got my bamboo last year to build the vegetable trellis pictured below, inspired by the mind-blowing structures I saw at the Clarkston Community Garden, mostly built by refugees-of-war. I asked the city if I could come get some bamboo before they chop and remove it, so that we can build tomato cages and trellises for the food pantry garden . I've already missed a lot of it, but maybe there's enough to matter. I like a rainy Monday that starts like this. Now, I just need to wait for an answer, and find a machete* . . .
* I used an $8 saw last time, which was a little slow-going.
