Last year the raspberry bed got away from us a bit. The birds ended up having a good year because we couldn’t get to everything to harvest it. Nothing against the birds but I really like raspberries so this winter we’ve done a hard prune to get it all back under control. Possibly too hard, but time will tell. We’ve taken out all the runners and also managed to move the gooseberry and redcurrant bushes to their own beds. They have joined a new blackcurrant bush that my clever mum propagated for us. Hopefully now we can get to things we can make better use of them. We just need to finish weeding and recover with mulch and we’ll be good to go.
