Our berry patch is centred under an old swing set. Scott took off all the swings, and we’ll use the frame as a basis for attaching netting when the berries are in fruit. We formed the patch with sleepers (2.4m x 3m) connected by metal plates I screwed into the sleeper, put down cardboard to choke the grass, then FiMBaristas came and filled it with soil for us yesterday (23 September 2010). Last night we planted out 4 types of blueberry, a white currant, a gooseberry, a red current, and a boysenberry. I may put in some jostaberry cuttings this weekend. Here’s the birth of our berry patch in photos!
