Jim I don't grow commercially although I probably have 40+ crowns and will divide another bed next winter.
Will give away some of these to friends and neighbours or anyone who wants them.
As for the crop i will make 20 to 30 pots of jam and will nag OH to make crumble and tarts, will freeze some to over winter, still have some from last year. Will give lots away and still not overwork the plants.
One of the girls in the office at work killed her two crowns in 2012 by over cropping so I will give her replacements.
I could never grow just enough of anything. Gardening is my only real vice, I think!
