Last Year's Crop Of Raspberries!
Last year, my Raspberry bush was like a weed, growing everywhere. I picked about a bowl a day, of fresh berries. I had a hard time reaching into it to pick fruit. Late fall, the bush got trimmed back a lot. If I was doing it, probably no where near what they did, but, I wasn't around that weekend, and it happened. I spent much of winter, upset some, and sad, thinking, I would get nothing this year, and that the bush was dead. I was wrong! This year, it's growing Healthy and Strong!
There's actual green leaves, and it is growing very nicely. I wonder if maybe I was too timid in my pruning in years past? I will do a little searching online for some tips on Raspberry fruit.
IN addition, I planted some more things yesterday and today. I moved the basil plant outdoors, into this pot, and planted some oregano seeds, and more basil seeds.
I also started the cold weather lettuces:
I couldn't find any of the Buttercrisp lettuce seeds, so I ended up buying seed tape. It's an organic paper, with seeds between two thin sheets. The paper breaks down fast and the seeds are evenly spaced and in a nice row. For me, I think the butter crisp is the lettuce I eat the most. Big, broad leaves, and a light flavor. I use them to make lettuce wraps, as well as salads. I know the pic above shows it all floppy and floofy, but, its windy today. I put the phone down, and could straighten before burying only as centimeter deep.
Here's a little PEAS update:
...More updates, coming soon, on the Zucchini, Carrot,
tomatoes, peppers, and more!
Another Uptrennd #GroVid20
In coming posts, I will update my garden plans and show you progress.
I am planting 3 kinds of tomato, 2 kinds of potato, carrots, cucumber, peas, corn, and a few kinds of lettuce, and in the early fall, I am planting Brussels Sprouts. Also, I usually plant herbs, too. Right now, I have oregano, parsley, and basil growing inside for cooking. Outside, I have a mint plan my grandfather brought over from Greece, when he came to America in the 1920's.
I have a cutting growing indoors, too, from his plant.
