Berries are Ripe
I'm planning to start harvesting my black currants this weekend. I've already picked alot of honeyberries (Lonicera caerulea var. edulis) and the only bush lest to go has bad tasting fruit which, I guess, could be OK cooked and I lost all my goumis to birds because I didn't net them enough. Also I picked some red and white currants, gooseberries and black currants which I used to make a very good preserves. My red currants and gooseberries are not very good this year which I believe is because they were defoliated earlier by the currant worms. My blue berries are too poor to worry about protecting.
