Frelga, if you have the same kind of raspberries that we had growing up, the new bushes will produce fruit in their second year. That's their peak producing year, so at the end of the season we would cut down every plant that had produced fruit that year. With that method, we had a bumper crop of raspberries for years and years and years.
That makes sense. All the trees I'm familiar with also make fruit on second-year wood. This is important for pruning: always leave some wood from each year so you get a good crop each year. I believe raspberries can be pruned, although it's not necessary, but pruning will encourage more fruit growth.
I'll post some food photos in the cooking thread, but yes, I get it about airfares. That's why I haven't been to a moot in UK or North America.
