Zigs, I'm becoming a bit jealous of you! We live in the country with a pond we swim in, rolling hills and country roads. But Ohio is NO match for the UK!
The villagers at Lydford on Fosse created a communal fruit garden about 10 years ago, people can help themselves to the fruit.
It's still a lovely place to visit even before the fruit comes.
Gooseberries are forming.
Loads of flowers on the Blackcurrants. There are Apples, Pears and even a Medlar tree, which I make jelly from sometimes.
The river is right next to it.
Wonderful pictures! What do gooseberries taste like? I have wanted to order some to plant here but they are not allowed in my state for some reason.
I never knew that Shellyann,
Can't see how they would eradicate a plant thats spread by bird droppings.
They taste a bit sharp, almost lemony.
Well thank you for letting me know how they taste. They look awful tempting in the seed catalogues every year. LOL That article is from 2011 and I wonder how the testing is going and if they have found anything conslusive out yet. I will have to research that.
