      A good bit of those! You haven’t tried raspberries in these parts have you? I’ve kept one alive in a pot for years now, but it never flowers. I was thinking of putting it in a perennial bed and seeing what happened.

        When we moved here, there were blackberries all along one of the fences, not having any kind of “maintenance” for over 2 years. I was pregnant at the time and my husband — no liking the brambles on his legs when mowing — ripped them all up. 😦

        I would totally try out the raspberry in a sunny spot in the ground and see how she does. You can always keep it in the pot and cut out the bottom; if it fails, it’s easier to transplant again to a bigger pot/supplemental soil.

        We have discovered many spaces with the wild variety (dewberries) that we raid in the late spring. No need to grow (or even buy) our own. Just pick and freeze! Other don’t like the wild variety due to the seediness of them, which is fine by me — more for me. They are the best of tart and sweet, and the seeds don’t bother me a bit. Only the chiggers do…
