Raspberry season is over. So sad. Unfortunately, what could have been an amazing raspberry season for us this year was interrupted and cut short because of the move. We moved the plants during the most crucial stage, as the berries were ripening, so the berries themselves did not ripen fully and some of them were dry, small, and just plain sad. The plants took awhile to establish, and a lot of it died off. But, in the last several weeks, we've had a resurgence of the plants and have more growth. No more berries, but now that the plants themselves have established, next year looks promising.
Every year, in order to maximize berry production and to give the live plant parts enough room, you have to prune the bushes. It's really easy. Here's what we started with:
That's it. It took 3 minutes and looks way better. See?
