Just wondering who picks and when you start picking. For some great reason I get a kick out of it. Last year was more of a learning opportunity and I was fairly discouraged. However, I stuck with it and managed to map out/mark on a GPS over 300 areas with plants on different road around my house...Hoping this is the ticket.

Tilling mainly keeps the weeds down.  Want a bigger patch?  Plant more plants.  Take care of them.  Mulch and preen in spring.  Little bit of lime.   Fertilize 2 to 3 times a year.  Keep it watered even after you are finished picking for season.  I would save the seeds from the berries and plant them then add them to my patch after 3 years.  Also check around base of existing plants for seedlings.  Replant in a row and baby them, them add to patch in 2 to 3 years.

Any thoughts on how to get a patch to expand? I heard you could till it, and this would help spread the roots????

I'm finally seeing a lot of shoots coming up but most are poor quality.  Buggy and just bad looking.  The recent heat got it all going but without any rain it all seems to be suffering.  Worst year I've seen anyway.

We've cooked our "ditchweed" on the grill, but that's as close as it's come to an open flame! Never burnt it, must be tough to light. LOL!!

We found some yesterday. If you have any spots that have 6" of grass or less and gets sun most of the day, check them! It's just starting!! Have a fun season!!!
