Just a visual

Loganberries ripening.Along with some other fruit from the plot.One thing I do love growing is soft fruits .Most are longer term, lasting several years in some cases. The results are always tasty and always welcome! Most importantly, the majority can eaten raw,meaning hey don't always make it home!
My apple tree has reached some degree of maturity and this year promises to supply enough fruits for a few lunch boxes.
Red currants are the most under rated of the soft fruits. In puddings and desserts they are sharper than most soft fruits which makes for a great sauce for greasier meats such as lamb or pork and duck. Blackcurrants. The majority of all commercial crops are used for Ribena but don't discount them. They also make a great sharp sauce but also much better ice cream !
