First to harvest, that is… My little black currant bush is absolutely loaded with fruit! This is its second season, and it looks like I’ll get a couple of pounds.
If I can be faster than the birds, that is…
Even the beleaguered red currant managed a few berries. The deer ate it down to stubs over the winter, but didn’t touch the black currant growing right beside it. File that under ‘mysteries of the universe’… I plan to dig it out and bring it closer to the house in a few weeks.
