Raspberry Patch - Need to Move It.
« on: February 03, 2008, 04:41:17 PM »
Need to move my raspberry patch.  Right now I donít have any type of system to stand them up.  They just lay on the ground.  I was wondering if anyone has a recommended method that gets them up, but gives you good access and is easy to maintain.  Iím thinking about using a ďTĒ post arrangement like a lot of the vineyards are using.

We drive a pair of metal fence post in the ground at both ends of the row and run wire between them to support the canes. Long rows require a pair or two along the length of the row in addition to those on the ends.

The system you describe should work, too, Submarinesailor.  I think I'd drill a hole in either end of the board to run the wire through.  New canes tend to come up outside of the support wires.  It's easier to capture the new canes if you can take the wires down and restring them fairly easily.

I just let mine go. But, dad does the 'T' thing you suggest submarinesailor. I have way more berries from my patch.  I keep the burdock pulled though. :D ;D

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)
