Boysenberry Trellis Failure

Broken raspberry and blackberry trellis.Giving myself a pat on the back for getting my boysenberry plants trimmed up and retrained on the trellis was a bit premature.

The plants had been so happy with the late summer weather and have been growing long runners from their thorny bases. The wooded post that I had used for the end of the row had lost its sturdy base due to rot and the trellis broke down.Trellis for raspberries broken down.

The carefully and artistically wrapped prickly stems will now have to be removed from the trellis wires before installing a new corner post and restringing.

Soon this mess will be cleaned up and back to right again.
