  • WICHE: Prune brambles now to keep fruit growing

    It’s time to clean up the bramble patch. In order to maintain healthy and productive blackberries and raspberries, we need to prune out the old to make room for the new.

    Most brambles are biennial, which means they fruit on second-year growth.

    Blackberries are easy to deal with, just remove the arching canes that fruited this year and trim up and trellis the new growth from this summer, which will bear next summer’s fruit. Repeat the same thing next year.

    Biennial raspberries are trickier.

  • Karas sisters finish 1-2 – with Cat 1st

    If it's the cross-country postseason, it must be Caterina Karas time.

The defending state champ, she covered the 5,000-meter course in 19 minutes, 7.92 seconds – almost 8 full seconds faster than her younger sister.
