Last year I had excellent crops of Blackcurrants, Strawberries and Blueberries with a few Raspberries. This year all my Blueberry plants died as did the Strawberries. The Blackcurrants were attacked by greenfly but did manage to grow new leaves and produce some fruit. The Raspberries have been groaning under the weight of fruit.
Nothing quite like fresh picked fruit for taste. Unfortunately, with the aid of a dollop of single cream, they don't last very long.
Also in the cage are a couple of patio pear trees, yet to produce anything, and a patio plum tree which did start to form a few plums but then the cold weather caused them to drop.
Oh well - better luck next year. At least I have a bowl of Blackcurrants ready for today and more Raspberries ripening for another day.
