Trellis for the Brambles

Done! Trellises are made and all the briars are pulled through the fence and stuck up through the wires - I added a string on the bottom to lift the smaller canes up so we can mow underneath - I did a quickie seminar at the local garden center all about fruiting things: apple trees, peaches, pears, plums, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, pretty much everything but figs (and she handed out a pamphlet on figs!) so I followed the directions. Of course the nice neat line drawings on the handouts only vaguely resemble the rangey canes of my berries! But next summer should be a big crop of berries! Yum! Next we attack the apple trees!

We are still getting green beans - we already have about 15 bags in the freezer!

Here are the two latest butternuts: Larry and Moe!
