When I woke up this morning, I had no idea what R was going to stand for today. I wasn’t really thinking about raspberries. But then the phone rang and my friend Suzie, asked if I wanted to go meet her at another friend of ours and get some raspberry starts. Sure! Luckily, this wasn’t something that was going to cause me tons of work, as we had planned on putting in some raspberries this year anyway. Gary even got the spot for them ready last Fall, so I merely needed to go get them and then run a tiller in that spot to just get it loosened up a bit.
We went over and met Suzie and dug up some starts. Then we cut the canes down so they were ready to plant and placed them in a tub with some water to hold them until I was ready to put them in their new home.
Then I prepped the area and planted the starts in their new home.
Here is a look at some happy raspberry starts.
And one more look at the happy starts. Aren’t they pretty? They sure are making me smile.
