RASPBERRY

(Rubus idaeus) Ask anyone under 12 what the 4th letter is in the word "raspberry." They never get it right. Funny! 
Raspberries grow well in Wisconsin, but ours were a disaster.  Between the birds and the weeds and our reluctance to properly maintain them... well, they are all dead now. Our neighbors up the road grow them in a greenhouse which apparently boosts yield; but we've given up.
