This was at its peak second year after transplant.   One if the things that had to be redone after the old farm house burned an replaced with a manufactured home was move the boysenberries which originated from the berry farm my family bought in 1944.  The arborist company cleared the electric line and dumped the chips at the at the top of the slope where I wanted to transplant them.  By the time I was able to start the project the pile was well mycelium infused.  As I dug the trench for each row I would add some of the wood chips then the sod upside down and transplant into it then add dirt and cover with chips.  I believe the woodchips and mycelium fed and held water for the best production on this farm but not the original homestead where they were fed with horse manure on 100 year old cultivated loam..
