We have prepared a place for raspberries, blackberries, rubarb, fruit and nut trees in what was formerly part of the front yard. We cleared the sod and tilled strips for the berries. Then we worked in compost and an organic nitrogen fertilizer. Then we set the posts and strung the support wire. Finally, we covered the beds with leaves for the winter. In early spring we will set out the plants in the nice beds we have prepared. The picture here was taken about half way through the process.
