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.
