Farmer MacGregor is 1/2 way through the construction of the boysenberry retreat. Each plant has a screen for support. Canes that will produce berries (floracanes) will be tied to the screens until harvest. At that time, those harvested canes will be removed and replaced with the new growth of canes (primocanes) that will produce the following year. The berries are planted in what is now a raised bed. Those beds are just now gaining exposure to a full day of sun. Soon this area will be cooking in sun all day long.

The rest of the area was sloped away from the wall and topped with some gravel. Sprinkler lines will have the drip nozzle replaced with a bubbler type sprinkler head. The old nozzles are not able to handle the water pressure. While testing the lines yesterday, there was a geyser like display similar to the Bellagio.
