Pruning Berries At The Farm

I love growing berries and I have large patches of red raspberries, golden raspberries, black raspberries, gooseberries, and currants.  For maximum yields from these plants, it's really important that the bushes be pruned properly.  Pruning produces more and larger berries.  It also helps to control diseases in the berry patch.  The berry pruning was started in March and is nearly complete, as it continued in between other farm chores.

There were so many wonderful comments posted on yesterday's blog about my recent Easter celebration.  Photographer, Douglas Friedman, has shared his photos on this blog in the past.  Douglas was one of my guests on Easter and he took many wonderful photos, as well.  Please enjoy a little bit more from last Sunday.

A Photo Gallery Of The Perfect Easter

I hope you all had a pleasant Easter weekend.  I certainly did!  Holidays are so much fun because I get to celebrate them with my grandchildren, Jude and Truman.  I've always loved Easter traditions and one of them is the big egg hunt.  This year we dyed 150 eggs in vibrant colors and the Easter bunny hid them all for the many children I invited.  Chef Pierre Schaedelin helped me serve a delicious lunch.  Please enjoy this photo gallery from my wonderful Easter.
