Who Else Wants Free Sticks For Row Marking?

I have this bamboo growing like crazy on a south facing wall. I cut it down every year, but it keeps coming. I thought about removing it completely, but it turns out to be pretty useful:

I cut down all the shoots at the ground and cut them into smaller lengths. They’re perfect for marking your rows after sowing seeds, and for some reason they’llĀ  last several years. Bamboo sticks are quite expensive in our local supermarket, so I’ll leave the bamboo where it is for now.
