I finally got round to picking the first of the fruit from the garden. There was a glut of red currants as well as black currants and gooseberries and a few strawberries that had escaped the slugs. I usually freeze the fruit and then use it through the Winter to make crumbles or compote to go with ice cream or yoghurt. I also harvested some early lavender ready for drying in bunches or making in to lavender bags. I love making use of things that have grown in the garden, it is always so much more satisfying than buying from a shop. I must confess I don't actually do any of the gardening I just enjoy the end products !
