My berries almost died this summer, I was so busy and it was so hot.   They're in the hoophouse, covered with plastic.  After 6 years the 4-year plastic is STILL just fine, but the shade cloth inside broke after a year -- so disappointing!

I'll take the plastic off in spring as it gets way too hot in summer and the hoophouse is full of trees and shrubs.  And gophers ...   It'll be moved down hill and the existing area will be a fenced garden and the entire area will be gopher fenced.  Just a little behind schedule!

So hopefully next year I'll get tons of berries and I want to take at least a hundred cuttings in winter.
