|First Harvest this year!|
|Raspberry & Blackberry beds|
On May 16, I planted 5 Killainey Red Raspberries, 3 Royalty Purple Raspberries and 3 Prime Jim Everbearing Blackberries. I could not find Anne (Golden) Raspberries or the grape vines I wanted to plant in the local plant nurseries, so I ordered them on line last week. They still have not come but I am hopeful they will come today or tomorrow. This weekend I plan on putting a weed barrier 2 ft out on each end and in between the beds then cover the area with bark mulch. This will make mowing the grass much easier than trying to mow around the plants.
Tonight there is a chance of frost again so I will be running around covering up the plants I put into the ground. I will need to haul all the flats I have on the side of the house in. Northern Wisconsin is forecasting a hard frost, so I guess I should be happy there is only a chance of frost tonight.
