    I had a giant thornless blackberry that turnd into a monster! Itset massive amounts of fruit, enough for my family andvthe birds as well. I took it out though after I noticed that seedlings were coming up in my neighbors gardens (spread by bird droppings) and that birds were pooping neon magenta streaks all over the neighborhood cars and nearby houses. The blackberrys were awesome but not worth alienating my neighbors😖 It was super embarrasing to have been to blame for neon bird poop on my neighbors siding.

    I would recommend using a heavier, longer lasting mulch: I’ve tried going the cheap route by using yard clippings -& this method works… for a couple months, but then this light mulch gets over run & I find myself reweeding around my fruit bushes, vines & trees instead of working on my vegetable gardens.

    Another option to protect crops is to plant something like a dwarf overbearing Burberry tree/bush. Find something that makes small fruit that the birds would prefer and can swallow whole. It will keep larger fruit from getting g pecked so much. Multiple crops per year like on a small Burberry helps a lot as well.

    I have a cherry tree that’s too big to be under a netting frame.  The crows eat the fruit and we hardly get any.  Can I prune the tree hard to make it not so high or wide and then maybe could get a net over it.  How to do?

    Proverbs 15 :1-3 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly. The eyes of the Lord are everywhere keeping watch on the wicked and the good.

    Brilliant video and content as usual. Do you have any footage of the strawberry frames, they look real handy.

    The garden planner says to plant dwarf apples trees 3’3" apart but everywhere else recommends 7′ apart. Any suggestions as to what information to follow?
