Old Well Sediment Removal, Peeps and the Bamboo Is Blooming

Working on the old well
I worked on the old well sediment removal on and off today.
Mostly I sit in the chair and turn the discharge valve on and off to help pick up the sediment in the well and then I go over and left the hose up and down a few times in the well to help pick up the sand. It’s a slow process as the sand is coming out slowly.
I checked on the new peeps and gave them water and some feed.
I still haven’t been able to get a count of the new peeps as they don’t sit still long.
I cleaned up these ripe strawberries. Yummy.
And I checked on the blueberries but they have a ways to go until they get ripe enough.
I’ve noticed my black bamboo patch is not looking good. It’s more or less brown and doesn’t have many leaves. Apparently bamboo blooms every so many years which is ok, but it then dies.
Here’s the blooms which makes bamboo rice which I doubt I’ll be eating.
So when it all dies I’ll have a big dry mess to take care of. I don’t know if I’ll lose the patch or if some new stuff will pop up but time will tell.
