I discovered last year that one of my blackcurrant bushes was actually a redcurrant bush. However, I never got to pick any redcurrants as when I went out to do so I found the birds had beaten me to it.
A year on and the bush has matured, and there is enough fruit for all.
However, to get to the redcurrants at the back I first had to pick the blackcurrants that were blocking my route.
I thought they were prolific last year, but compared to this year they were positively sparse!
Over a kilo picked just from the branches that were in the way and overhanging the lawn. I would guess I have only picked about 20%...
I have also pulled out a sack load of the tall weeds that were growing through the bush hiding the cornucopia.
And now I can see the apples growing around the edge of the wall and needing summer pruning...
The trials and tribulations of a life of leisure...
