One of my 2020 quarantine projects: roll back the overgrown English ivy from the parking strip retaining wall and replace with raspberries! I found this yellow variety which was recommended by some website which I’ve sadly lost track of. I wanted red raspberries but they were sold out. I’m sure these will be just as delicious! I planted them in one of the sunniest spots in the yard, hopefully they do ok – a little shade doesn’t seem to deter the invasive Himalayan blackberries so that gives me hope.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
