Fresh Bamboo!

It's that time of year again.  My wife picked bamboo shoots near fairfax and they are already on the stove cooking.  She has all of the bamboo fields scoped out along her drive to work and today was the day for picking.  You have to pick them when they are young and tender.  They grow as much as three inches a day so there is just a small window in the spring to get them before they are hard enough to build a house!

My Growing Coral Bed

Here is my reef aquarium.  Most of the fish are camera shy but the corals don't seem to mind.
