My brother, who is four years older than me, already has an established garden. He grows these wonderful black rasperry bushes and was kind enough to give me a cane as a housewarming gift when we first moved in at the end of March.
I planted it about two weeks later, a few feet out from the fence because of all the shade that is thrown off the fence. I also put the cinder blocks around it to keep out the weeds, although this is probably only temporary until I can get something nicer looking. He told me it would require some support, so I put the black flower "mini trellises" there- these were actually the sides from an old spice rack that broke, which I couldn't bear to throw away because they were so cute.
