Dug up a bamboo shoot for the first time ever! There was only 2 or 3cm of the top poking out of the soil but somehow a kind man had found it and let me dig it up. They have seriously strong roots and took me about 15 minutes to dig down and under it before prising it out of the ground! We dug up for in total and put two on a fire to roast in tin foil and kept this one for dinner. They look and taste nothing like the bamboo shoots you might get in sweet and sour dishes in the supermarket back home.
