Keeping on top of the raspberries (or alongside them at least...)

The number of things that I have really not been that efficient at in the garden continues to increase. It didn't occur to me, when planting my rows of raspberries in my raised sleeper beds, to string up a proper wire frame. This has resulted in having to tie new lines, made of string, across the canes I'm using as a makeshift support every week or as (the plants are shooting up at mad speeds and there are small, underripe fruits hanging in tantalizing bunches from most of the branches - I think it's possible I'll get a good crop this year even though the canes are in their first year!). Next year I'm going to have to get a proper support and put it in before they start growing. String really isn't that strong...
