How to Tame Your Raspberries

No, this is not the title of some kind of crazy sci-fi flick about killer berries from outer space. Actually, sometimes our raspberry and blackberry canes attack us as if they were trying to cause harm. Those thorns can be sharp!

I just built this simple trellis system to help keep those wild and crazy berry plant canes from invading our path. Plus, the trellises offer a great structure to drape bird netting over. Double duty!

A picture is worth a thousand words. So, I do not believe instructions are required. Just be sure to only use wood that is untreated. I used natural cedar wood. Cedar is durable, resists rot fairly well and weathers nicely.
