Pruning the Berry Patch
Posted by Sharkey
When you live on a farm, there are many chores to do. Shaun, the gardener, has been really busy with his crew, getting the grounds all spruced up for spring. Franny and I decided to explore the berry patch the other day and saw that it was really overgrown. Berries need a good pruning every now and then, so I found some clippers and got busy. Come and see my pruning skills.
1 Come on, Franny! Let's go check out the berry patch.
2 From the looks of this tangled, overgrown mess, I'd say that the raspberry bushes need a good pruning. Shaun said that berries should be pruned at this time of year.
3 Pruning can't be that hard. What do you say - we help Shaun out? He's so busy elsewhere on the property.
4 A little snip here - a little snip there - hey, this is kind of fun!
5 Voila!!! That row is done!
6 Very nice work, Sharkey, if I don't say so myself!
7 Now all we have to do is dream of fragrant, sweet red raspberries.
8 And delicious black raspberries
9 And perfect golden raspberries
10 Sharkey, I think that Shaun will be BERRY happy that we took the initiative to prune. LOL!!
