Prolific Raspberry Growth (with RECIPES)


Prolific Raspberry Growth (with RECIPES)

Raspberry bushes grow very fast when compared to blackberry bushes.  A few years ago I shared how it took almost 10 years before my blackberry patch was producing usable quantities (click HERE to view: "A Fruit Grower's Patience - BLACKBERRIES").  My raspberry patch has only taken 3 years to get to a prolific stage.

Three years ago we planted 5 plants that were half the size of the raspberry bush picture below:

Now just look at how wonderfully the raspberry bushes have spread!! (see in the picture below - NOTE:  the very front of this picture is a blackberry bush but everything filled in between the treeline behind are all raspberry bushes):

Some of the plants are "everybearing" (which means that there will be two harvests - one in the summer and then in the Fall).  We already have tender fruit formation.

The picture below shows the filled in raspberry patch from the opposite side:

If you have the garden space, it's really worth a short wait of three years to enjoy garden fresh raspberries!

The following are a few of my favorite RASPBERRY recipes that I previously shared with you on this blog.
