I’ve spent the past two days sorting out the raspberry patch, which has needed doing for some time. I dug up all the plants then forked over the area and added plenty of compost before replanting fourteen in a double row. There are already signs of new growth on some of them which is good to see, and I’ve also kept some spares in a large container just in case any don’t grow.
I hope doing this will rejuvenate them and I’ll get a decent crop of raspberries this year, like these back in June 2017.
If I don’t then I’ll replace them in the autumn.
It rained last night, and it’s damp and dull this morning so I won’t going to the plot for the first time in nearly two weeks.
Have a good weekend, and take care!

A weed-free immaculate raspberry patch! Hope they turn out well for you this growing season. It’s raining here today (in Kentucky) as well.
Liz and it will now be easier to weed. Thanks, fingers crossed. There’s been almost no rain here all month. xx
Hi Mr F,
It took some finding where/how I could reply to you with the new app WP have introduced. I seem to have gone back to move forward!
Your raspberries are keeping you busy in thought and deed. I do hope you’ll get the growth you hope for. Two full weeks plotting at this time of year, is very good.
Happy weekend to you. Xx
Menhir how annoying, I hope all is okay now. That’s sounds typical for such changes.
They did indeed, but hopefully worthwhile doing. Fingers crossed. It really surprising given the time of year.
Thanks, and for you too. xx
Yes, a damp day today!
Your raspberry patch looks good.
We actually enjoyed some raspberries with double cream after dinner today 🙂
Enjoy your weekend.
All the best Jan

Yes, here’s to hoping your plants will thrive with this reboot. Do you fertilize them?
Nikki thanks. Yes I’ll be giving them a general feed. xx
Fingers crossed for a great harvest from them 🙂 x
