    Tom…those berries are making my mouth water…I want some now! I just had a thought…with your wealth of knowledge in the garden, your uncanny wit and humor….why now write a gardening how to book, with all of your antidotes, humor, challenges, and throw in Boz and Gracie’s personalities? (and we must not forget your own charming personality) I think it would be a smash hit, and I promise I will be one of the first to buy it! :)

      What a fine comment to read over my first cup of coffee. Thank you Ina, but now what would I title the book, Tom’s Terra Nova Tidbits, or Tillin’ with Tom, or Getting Dirty with the Garden Guy. Okay let me keep working on these. Again, thanks for your vote of confidence, who knows, maybe I will write a book.

    VERY informative!
    I wish I had a printer to take this out to the garden with me. I’ll probably have to come back to this page again and again.
    Thanks so much for the great info!!

    Thank you for the reminder to get out there and prune. Of course, now I have to go out and work in the garden on this wet, PNW day. I better get out there before it starts raining again!

    Hi Tom. I began pruning my raspberry canes down to two feet a few years back and it works well for me. Will be interested to see how the height comparison works out in your mini trial. I am about to start my autumnal hack back and clear out. How are the plans for the vegie patch? Anything new? I have just planted out garlic, brocolli and sown two types of heirloom onions I haven’t tried before – Australian Brown and Creamgold. Good keepers apparently. Pats for the hounds :-).

    I just have ever bearers. The biggest and best berries are always in the fall crop (unless the cold and wet gets to them first…). I’ve always pruned for two crops. This year I’m cutting half to the ground to see if there is a noticeable difference in the fall crop.
    Nice to see you accessorized with gardening gloves that matched your eyeglass tape.

    Do those shortcakes ever look good!!!
    I have absolutely no room in my yard for raspberry bushes. I’ve been toying with the idea of planting several behind our fence on the alley side. Am I a fool to do that?

    Thank you! I have some raspberries growing near the base of a silver maple – the gift of birds. I have been trying to develop them into a raspberry patch,but have been baffled by the pruning.
