Ours haven’t had a chance to get tall; the deer prune them in the winter.   >:(
No deer in the neighborhoods here though some still hang out in the few woods that are left.
Some of ours are 8' but we're beginning to trim em down some. Some stems naturally die off. They pull over fairly easy, but are brittle some have to be careful.
They begin to produce at 2 years, and the third year they do better, continuing to bush out.
I have a place in mind that was once a flower bed, grown over with grass now. It was a sandy soil 4 or 5 inches deep that I added when I built it and full sun. From what I've been reading looks like it would make a good spot. Got another similar area that is partial sun that might do well also.
I could send a few roots/cuttings.  ;)
8) I'll give'em a try. I may just put glyphosate on the grown over area to kill the grass quickly or perhaps make holes as needed. The other area was sort of a dumping spot for wood shavings. Used to have a huge rose bush there.

Grocery run this morning. Didn't need anything but TP was a good price so got some for the stash also #10 can of yellow hominy and a couple rolls of parchment paper for the stash. Hit three different stores for the stuff but nothing out of the way. I watch the sale flyers and check online, got good prices on all.

Got 2 more 25' rows of onions in yesterday evening. Doubled them up, staggering onions on each side of the string line. So that will make six 25' rows of onions, double what we usually put in.

Bought replacement supplies today. Yea, we rotate.  ;D
Swung by the feed store as we needed chicken scratch, and bought extra bags of cracked corn. Figured that can't hurt, as all the flooding in Nebraska will probably raise the corn prices this year.

Got a few more storeroom supplies.
Garden work was out due to the rain. It's cooling off again.  :(
