Coyote Grove was published in about twenty newspapers across the southern states. It covered life in the country and a medley of other topics. Randy Bamboo is my blog, and my older columns will be mixed with it.
Some of my friends call me Bamboo. I’ve planted over 20 varieties all across my farm, Shawnee Grove. I have everything from the mighty giant Moso from China, to the
functional Arrow Bamboo from Japan. Once used often in the heat of battle, it now stands tall as a rather peaceful, though stunning houseplant.
I have large piles of spalted oak and old chicken house lumber that I turn in to tables and benches. And then there’s Reba and Nemo, my Anatolian Shepherds that keep an eye on my herd of lawnmowers (Katahdin Sheep.)
