What a fruitful day!!

Well, I went for it today, afraid the rain would catch up with me, picked another 3lbs (1 1/2 kls] of gooseberries, 2 lbs of rhubarb, 2lbs of white currants ( I thought they were red as some kind person in garden centre had put a red currant label in them!!) 1 1/2 lbs of red currants and 1 1/2 lbs of black currants!!! It was a race between me, the birds and the rain!!! All safe in freezer now, no time to make jam at mo, so I can do at a future date. Saw a fledgling blackbird on the Bramley by all the bushes (Mum was on hand squawking and eating) and managed to round up my 18yr old deaf cat(that still catches mice!)and shut him in so the youngster had a chance to get away! And here comes the rain!!!
Now to eat, and work, have a commission card to design and cross stitch for Thursday so will be very busy tonight and tomorrow. Am berried out!!! Byo.
