The answer is, sort of. The new growth comes out about 2" thick so
it's already somewhat stiff. Also note that if it touches anything
like wood or masonry it almost instantly produces a huge mass of
roots that anchor it to the surface (which might be helpful in
training but likely is not where you want it attached). This is
certainly a learning experience for us...

Know where Sheldonville is? (a village in West Wrentham). We're
between there and Diamond Hill.
