It seems like you have to work pretty hard to get those nice fresh berries. We have a small row of raspberry bushes along one side of our garden.
The job I like the least is pruning the raspberry bushes. You have to make sure you have some protective clothing on and never think about doing it without a good pair of gloves.
Pruning is necessary to keep your bushes from getting out of control and to make sure you continue to get a good yield. Raspberries will spread if they are not maintained, and making sure you keep them pruned is very beneficial even though it is not a pleasant job.
I still find myself doing it every year because I love the taste of the sweet fruit.
