Red and blackcurrants from our garden.  Made them into a smoothie earlier with banana, red maca, ashwaganda, oat milk, maple syrup, and chia seeds!

They are so easy to grow, apart from tying up any branches hanging too heavily, we just let them do their thing…

Strawberry and sage make great companions.  These little wild strawberries grow everywhere, and they taste just like the Strawberry Shortcake popsicles I had as a five year old!  Ah, nostalgia…

Raspberries appear on a daily basis, and I eat them as I walk through the garden – they don’t make it as far as the kitchen!  Thanks to the last two autumn prunings I gave them they’re doing really well, and seem to be growing numerous new canes which will fruit next year.  Once this year’s canes have finished fruiting I’ll thank them (I can’t help it!) as I cut them right down to the ground.

I’m gonna see how much I can eat in two days, and freeze the rest for winter…
