We were out walking the other day and saw a rather pitiful garden with one raspberry cane, it looked very sad, there were three rather nice looking ripe raspberries on it, but I left them alone, it took a great deal of restraint. I don't know why anyone would grow just the one cane??? My grandfather used to grow quite a good patch of raspberries, which us kids would demolish!!! After we had murdered the pea patch, fresh peas from the pod just piced, yum!!!
Do the canes only last two years then you have to replant? I had a feeling they were biannual?

everything you ever wanted to know about raspberries.

http://ohioline.osu.edu/hyg-fact/1000/1421.html

kyles, raspberries contantly send out runners, or shoots to develop new plants, or primocanes. the next year, the floricane produces fruit, then it dies. it never seems to matter, because once the patch is established after 2 years, there should be an ever renewing supply of both primo and floricanes, if taken care of properly.

kam sah ham nee dah, marge!!!

i laughed the other day when they, after being sort of amazed at the amount of zuchhini and cucumbers that i've been pulling out of the garden, asked me how many hours do i work at my regular job. not what did i do for a living, but how many hours. they must think i'm a slacker only averaging 55 hours/week, preferring to waste time gardening and keeping up my yard.
