Raspberry patch

I’ve planted a raspberry bush.

I love raspberries but at $10 a punnet who can afford to eat them!

We buy the frozen ones sometimes as a special treat and the kids make short work of them.

The best raspberries I’ve ever tasted were at a berry farm on the east coast of Tasmania.

Oh rapture!

I bought the plant at the Mt Claremont Farmers Market last weekend.

My gardening advisor said lots of organic matter and a handful of some fast release fertiliser in the bottom of the hole.

Water every day.

Does this look like a happy raspberry plant?

Apparently raspberries send out runners and I could end up with a raspberry corner.

Bring it on!

Of course my pommy husband Groover was skeptical.

“I grew up with raspberries” sniffs he, “and they will never survive in Perth!”

Yeah whatever.

*blows raspberry*

We’ll see who is right in a few months and whether four years studying agricultural science actually counts for anything.
