The raspberries are nearly finished, and the redcurrants were getting ripe. The birds had been sneaking under the netting – David has rescued about half a dozen blackbirds during the last few weeks. So this morning it was our turn: we removed the netting and picked 7.6 kg of redcurrants! Yes, just the 7.6 kilograms. And we even left some for the birds – mustn’t be greedy. There’s just one thing… what to do with them all! At least we’ve got a little time before the figs hit us full-force.
