Fighting the gooseberries

Arms all scratched up. These better be good gooseberries. Doing ok at the moment… This many blueberries every day off our 50p bushes from Homebase the other year. (You should see the size of the bay tree we similarly ‘rescued’ about 7 years ago.) Raspberries all done now, strawberries on the wane, greengages and plums not near ripe, cherries demolished by birds because we didn’t net them this year. We always seem to plant things in inaccessible places. This is true of the gooseberries, which are not the easiest of plants anyway with all those angled evil thorns. But this little lot should do a good apple and gooseberry pie tomorrow.
