  • It’s time to clean up the bramble patch: in order to maintain healthy and productive blackberries and raspberries we need to prune out the old to make room for the new.   
    Most brambles are biennial which means they fruit on second-year growth.  Blackberries are easy to deal with, just remove the arching canes that fruited this year and trim up and attach the new growth from this summer to your trellis; this new growth will bear next summer’s fruit.  Repeat the same thing next year.

  • The other day someone congratulated our features editor, Sarah Gatling, on her promotion, which was nice, except she didn’t get a promotion.
    Sarah said if she got a promotion she’d like to be promoted to potentate -- that sounds like a cool thing to be, she said.
    It reminded me of the hymn, “Crown Him With Many Crowns,” in which Jesus is called “the potentate of time,” and also reminded me that a few years ago, Sarah gave me a very old hymnal, copyrighted in 1924, called “Harvest Hymns.”
