17 July 2007 Raspberry

http://ibozo.notlong.com/ 17 July 2007 Raspberry.

These four plants were purchased from Home Depot in 2005. The plants grow to about two meters plus and are supported with re-bar rods, which will be improved for next year. The fruit is on last years stems, which will be cut to ground level after fruiting. The picture depicts the second picking and there will be a third picking. The first picking produced the same amount of berries. The berries are quite large and have an excellent flavour. The name of this cultivar has been lost.

I have another group which fruits later in the season. They are in their second year and they produce on new season's growth, and are cut to ground level for over-wintering. This is my first real experience with raspberry growing.

Raspberries are my ultimate favorite berry! I buy frozen most often, but of course, love fresh picked the best. We have grown our own before but found keeping them up was too much of a chore and the bugs loved them so. :( Eaten with organic vanilla yogurt, Michigan blueberries, toasted slivered almonds, & Nutella...quite a treat, and healthy as well.
