Gooseberries

Whilst outside tidying up the front garden I noticed my barren gooseberry bush had sprouted fruit. For years it has produced nothing, yet this year six plump berries now hang from it’s spikey branches. I got very excited and told Matt. ‘Yum’,he exclaimed, ‘gooseberry crumble’.
‘ Not yet’, I replied, ‘however I could probably get enough filling if we use all the gooseberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants and rhubarb currently ripening in our front garden’.
I always wanted the front garden to be filled with edible plants. Fennel, rosemary and lavender alongside the previously mentioned plants come together to make for a very useful and bountiful area of loveliness.
