It’s berry season around here.

It’s berry season around here. Eureka may be too cold for tomatoes, but it’s perfect for berries. These are ever-bearing raspberries that produce a crop in early summer and then again in fall. Berries are prone to some diseases and pests around here, and it’s a bit of a trick to know how to prune them and keep them happy. I’ve been relying on The Backyard Berry Book for my information, and the products in Gardens Alive Fruit Tree First Aid Kit, especially Seranade, have been really helpful in keeping down the bugs and the spots.
