Raspberry Bushes Doing Fine by Jeremy

The raspberry bushes I planted at the beginning of the summer are finally starting to take off. Well, all but one, anyway.

The healthiest of the five bushes is about three feet tall now and, as you can see in the picture, is about to put out the first harvest of raspberries. Three of the five are doing nearly as well and should fruit at around the same time, so in total I might have enough yellow raspberries to do the yellow raspberry beer I wrote about at the beginning of the year. The fifth plant, the one closest to the swimming pool, has not grown much since it went in the ground. It is still alive, though, so I assume if it survives the winter it will do better next year. We shall see!
