This morning Lucy the puggle dog and I went out to the raspberry patch to do a little weeding.
Every year around this time, new raspberry growth starts popping up between the rows and I have to get out there and do some serious weeding before the new canes begin to take over the paths.
In 2011 we had a bumper crop of raspberries, but last year was just so-so. I think it may have had something to do with me tossing a boatload of Tagro at the base of the canes but who knows, maybe it was just an off year. Fingers crossed this year will be better.
That is, as long as I can keep Lucy from turning the raspberry canes in to little nubs of nothingness.
I’m beginning to think pets and gardening are not such a good idea after all. Or maybe it’s just puppies and gardening that don’t mix.
Neat and tidy rows. Just the way I like it.
Are YOU growing raspberries this year? If so, do you know what variety?
We are growing Cascade Delight raspberries and they are da’ bomb! If you are local and you’d like to buy some, you can find them at Spooner Farms in Puyallup, Washington.
