Bernie, I'd love to see more of your chicken coop set up. :)    And if those are raspberries in the front right.. I'd like to see how you've planted those too.     I had raspberries planted on the south side of an old useless garage wich has now fallen down.  I need to move the raspberries and have been wondering on how / where.. and what kind of set up.

I do miss having chickens here.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

I'm making a note to myself to take some pix for a thread on my raspberries this year. Planted about 100 plants last fall, and this spring I'll be building the trellises.

Hey, Bernie!! Long time no key! Missed hearing from you. Glad to see you here.
I only do what the voices in my wife's head tell her to tell me to do.

OP..   100 plants?  Whoa... 

What do you mean by a trellis for your raspberries?    I"ve seen a fence like system where they are tied to it to keep them from falling over..but never a trellis.    I'm interested on this one. :)

Other than M&Ms in Gorp..  I'm not sure I'd take chocolate with either.  Oh wait..  yes..  Cant forget the Swiss Miss hot chocolate.  :) :)

I havent been out cooking yet..its just been too cold here.   But I've been prepareing some small 'condiment' packages for taking out with me this spring.   Butter , being the main one.

Saying "trellis" may connote the wrong image. I'm talking about a "T" frame on each end of the row, with a second, narrower cross member half way down the post. Then you run four wires/cables, each from the end of one of the crossbeams down the row. It holds the plants vertical, and any suckers can be easily removed.
A friend of mine uses 4 poles, two spaced at each end of the row, and then just runs poly rope between them to contain the canes.

Where's the link on your blog where I can see your berry setup?

Ok.. yup thats the system I've seen.       I have a fence about five feet tall around my garden and have thought of just planting my raspberries along it on the outside and using rope to loop around and hold up to the fence.   On either side of the rows the suckers would be eliminated by either the mower or tiller.  Do you think this would work just as well?

Any kind of support will work, as long as there is good air circulation and lots of sun.
