Too many Raspberry Canes?

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if I should thin these out, and if that’s a common practice for some of you.

I would just have the 3 healthiest canes.

Well I pruned them. Not sure why I didn’t realize this earlier.

It’s hard to prune potential fruit away. You do get use to it! I may have kept 5 but yeah they were too close. Usually I prune to 2 canes per square foot. Hard to do when they tend to grow close. I try to average, some places may have 0 canes in a square foot, so I may leave 4 in another square foot, still meeting my average.
