Katie HM commented on Ben Royce's blog post About that gas station on the corner of Main Street and Fishkill Avenue
"With the layout of the gas stations on that side of the street, they are all horribly inconvenient for cars to pull in and out of. But I'll maintain, at least for now, that it should be up to the owner to see if his business is not doing well…"

Steve Knowles commented on Katie HM's blog post The "Where Is This?" Contest is back!
"I'm guessing it's somewhere where there is some gray surface that has some red paint on it.  Is that close enough?"

The "Where Is This?" Contest is back!

When I first started this contest several years ago, you folks loved it. It went on hiatus but is back now. Because everyone is so spot-on with Beacon these days, I tried to make it a really hard one. BUT, you still might get it in a second! The prize is really good...a jar of hot fudge sauce from Utensil. Entries must be left on the blog, and not on here or at Facebook. Good luck!…See More

"It's possible some people are confusing japanese knotweed with bamboo. There is a lot of knotweed in Beacon, and it is relentless."

Katie HM commented on Katie HM's blog post Checking in on your gardens!
"Well geeze, maybe an alternative to the bamboo for privacy? Like lilac trees? They have big leaves and are quite peaceful in the wind. Leaves drop in winter tho. There are evergreen bushes that stay green year round. Not the coolest looking bush…"

Ben Royce commented on Katie HM's blog post Checking in on your gardens!
"Well heck, if I get dinosaurs out of these bamboo, I'm opening a Safari Park and retiring. If it is any consolation I'm a terrible gardener and my latest attempt seems to be failing too."

Anna West commented on Katie HM's blog post Checking in on your gardens!
"Didn't seen any references to controlling the bamboo, originally, just mentions of planting it.  I see its "privacy screen" all over town. It is the bane of Beacon, because people see the screen and not the shoots in…"

Checking in on your gardens!

We had a thread earlier about how your gardens were growing, and Ben maybe was going to plant bamboo. I was going to use hay mulch at the start of the season. Here's an update with pictures at A Little Beacon Blog, and would love to get your comments there as to how your gardening is going!
