Water Bamboo Time!

wpid-img_20151017_153832_1445078138540.jpgYep, finally it’s harvest season for all the zillions of water bamboo (or water oats 茭白筍) growing all over Sanzhi 三芝 area. The plants are now huge – up to people height, but are being cut and bagged up ~ the actual vegetable is a bit like a leek.  All along the roadsides are people selling bags of the stuff….

It’s also known locally as ‘Beauty Legs’  美人腿 after their shape… well, enough said!

And next weekend Sanzhi District Council is holding a Water Bamboo Festival ~ and excitement is mounting!
