I planted my Raspberries in 2019 and I did not give them enough room. But I figured I would just prune them out and utilize the space I have. Last year they did grow very thick and I knew I needed to support them. My support system is obviously not a professional or permanent set up. I just needed something quick, this is how they look this spring. As you may know most raspberries only fruit on 2nd year wood. With my varieties, I will have new shoots that will grow green this year, harden off and then produce next year. I haven’t yet pruned this spring (2022).
These are some picture’s from last year post flower and in the fruiting stage.
It is a little hard to see, but you can see that I sprayed some copper and it was still on the leaves by the blue tint in the photo on the left.

Here is great example of sun burn on strawberries that happened to me last year. It can happen on almost any fruit.
I usually make freezer jam out of my raspberries, as well as eating fresh.
