The Queen of Berries
Today I picked my first crop of gooseberries...

This morning, on the bush...


Harvest Home! Here is the entire 2013 crop...


It wasn't enough for a proper gooseberry updside-down pudding, but it occurred to me that I could make a batch of small ones...


Cooked, but not yet upside-down:


Pleasingly inverted:


They tasted excellent. Next year, I hope for a larger-scale operation on the same lines:


I shall spare you tomorrow's dissection of the stools in pursuit of undigested gooseberry seeds, but feel free to imagine it over your civet coffee.

You've done better than my first raspberry cane crop, ONE BERRY.

I imagine the civet coffee tastes better if you don't have it explained to you beforehand.

Well, I hope you enjoy the raspberry, all the same. It's my second favourite - but even with just one we can be confident of seeds caught between the teeth.

I think raspberries take years to get going.
