Gooseberries & Cherries.

Today we will just take a quick look at some of the fruit which is coming on well. In the first picture is one of the two Gooseberry bushes.

This picture shows the cherries which have been netted since this picture was taken.

Both the cherries and gooseberries seem to be trouble free in this garden, in other gardens in the past I've had trouble with gooseberry sawfly which are caterpillars that eat all the leaves off and and also american gooseberry mildew which riuns the crop. The only trouble I've ever had with cherries comes from the birds.

So birds love those berries ... But I guess they'll wait until the berries turn red, right?
