97/365: Expansion of Raspberry Patch

We had 2 areas of raspberries.  1 of those were just planted last year.  Our other area was not thriving - think it may be too shaded, so we moved the old area and expanded the area that we had planted last year.  We intended on moving 10 raspberry plants, but after digging up all the little extra guys that branch out from the main plant, we had around 25 new plants!!!  We now have a large 4 row area that will have yummy raspberries later this year!

We are getting super excited about the fruit production.  The last few years have been spent planting lots of fruit, nut, and berry plants.  Last year, we started to get a small amount of production from these plants.  This year, we are excited to see what else starts producing.  In a few years, we will have so much fruit, we will have to increase preserving techniques and possibly selling stuff as we will not be able to eat it all ourselves!

LOVE IT!

I would be more than happy to take any extras off of your hands. Even at a price. Yummm
