Things to do in the garden during lockdown day 96: pick the redcurrants

Last night's rain means the fruit are plump and ready to pick.

It's a bumper harvest this year having netted the bush. However the birds then went for their second best fruit and devoured the blackcurrants instead, so that harvest is well down and the blackcurrant bush will be going under the netting as well next year.


Some have gone into a red and blackcurrant tart a la Nigel Slater. YUM!
