What's In Season - White Currants
I was excited to find yesterday that the white currants were ready to be picked. The reds still need another week or so and the black currants are ripening a few at a time.
We have one small white currant bush, which was covered underneath a thick canopy of tall weeds. I was surprised that we able to get exactly a pound of fruit. I have BIG plans for these!
Strangely, this year I'm more excited about all of the fruit shrubs we have growing around our unit than I am about my vegetable garden. It's nice to have such a big reward from so little effort!
