Today I was cutting back and cutting up raspberry canes in prep for this summer’s harvest. We really miss the dozens of daily raspberries we harvested all summer last year.. .I’m hoping these cuttings made today root so I can share them- I cut canes so that each cane has 2-3 buds underground ( in plant pots in the yard) and at least 2 above the ground. I expect to have at least 50% root so I can plant them around the outside of the cottage fence and/or give to friends – contact me if you’d like some. As always – first come first gifted to…. I expect about 20 – 50 cane pieces to root and am so happy to share them. this year I am re-using last years photos until some thing exciting happens ( canes are just twigs in dirt for the moment) but will update with new photos soon. However, we are still harvesting from the gardens – today we dug up some sun-chokes and picked some fresh spearmint-growing in a tree pot for lemon mint tea.
How about our weekend gardening trip to Petaluma?
