Red and black


Lucky any of these currants and berries managed to come home. It was the usual torture or trying to pick them without tasting as I went. I just had to eat a few, but who wouldn't!!

This is just part of this year's soft fruit crop. The big freeze, the dark spring and the big heat have made for a huge harvest, massive in weight compared to previous years.

This is by far the BEST THING about working a plot so far from home. The strawberries and currants might have finished fruiting, but there are raspberries and blueberries to come!!
