Gooseberry Hunt

Our Cape Gooseberries are ripening. We have about 8 plants scattered through the yard. Some were planted intentionally, others are just blooming where they self seeded.



We don't have enough ripening at once to make anything like jams or tarts, but we do enjoy their sour taste as we hunt for them among the stems. There is always enough for each of us.

Those look really interesting.

My little girl used to find them in her Nana's garden, calling them "dooseberries"

Oh YUM! Wish we could grow them here. I have such fond memories of raiding an uncle's patch in QLD.
