Giveaway: Red Raspberry Canes


This weekend, Todd built some raspberry trellis' in our new red raspberry patch.  He did such a great job.  I cant wait for the transplanted red raspberries to start to grow for the season.

While transplanting the red raspberries, I realized that we have ALOT of canes.  More than we need (OK, lets be honest, more than I want to transplant!).  When we purchased the house, I bought 5 canes and planted them on the side of the house.  Then, the next year, I bought either 25 or 50 from ebay and planted them.  Now, 4 years later, they have multiplied to a couple hundred canes!!

This giveaway is for 10 red raspberry canes. (Planting and maintenance instructions will be provided.)

Giveaway ends Wednesday, March 14th at midnight.  The winner will be announced Thursday, March 15th.



My hope is that you will start your raspberry patch with the help of these canes, and they will provide delicious fruit for you for years and years to come!

Good luck!

  3. Entry #4 - I would love to have concord grapes and a few fruit trees. However for now all we have are a few wild red raspberry bushes around the property and hopefully they won't be damaged from the big storm we had this past year.

  51. I found a wild plum on our property last year and it is blooming now. It has the smallest but tastiest plums! We have set out other plum trees, apricot trees, apple trees, cherry trees, a fig tree, and blackberry vines brought up from the woods. I have one red raspberry plant and one black raspberry plant that I've planted in the same bed. Is that alright? I'm new with raspberries. Oh, and I have a few strawberry plants, too.
