Thank you. I probably need to remove quite a lot of it this winter. i need to figure out how to retrain it. Currently there is a ledge behind I which doesn't help.

As for what I use them for, I just eat them. I love the fact that I can just go out in the garden and pick thi

I think if I add some kind of stopper to the one I have it would work. I have some old cable holder that if turned upside down would do the job.
