Permaculture Fruit and Salad Update

The same thing has happened this year as did last…

I am struggling with the fruit produced last summer and am desperately using it for wine-making!

Oh well, I hear you say, that’s alright then…

However, there is a real panic setting in as the blackcurrants are fast maturing and every time that I open the freezer, a realization of the immensity of what’s to come, stares back at me in the form of bags upon bags of frozen Blackcurrants!

A goblet of the red stuff from last year…a fine vintage!

Blackcurrants do make superb wine, a real taste of summer to open in midwinter!

The only real rule to follow is that everything is kept scrupulously clean…that’s all!

So, to today and the video I have uploaded from Bealtaine Cottage…

It’s all about how the plants are progressing…and they are doing very well indeed…

Enjoy watching…
