This past weekend I was with my family and some friends walking through a farm that grows all types of berries, like strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. We were able to pick the last remaining raspberries on the vines and take them home.

As you do when you’re on your holidays, I thought I would bring home our pickings and try to replicate the plant. I wondered how easy or difficult it would be to grow my own raspberry vines using the raspberries that we picked.

    The first thing I noticed is that the raspberry is made up of loads of little juicy pods and inside each pod is a seed. The way I see it, each seed represented the potential for a new plant. Or does it? So this is step one in my little experiment in trying to find out how easy or difficult it is to grow raspberries from seeds.

    I’ll dry out the juicy pods and get the seeds ready for planting, and let you know.
