Ribes nigrum

6th April 2012

When I moved into this garden I was convinced I could do anything. I had never had so much space to work with. More importantly, I had never had so much space to fill. I put in some fruit trees, some strawberries, rhubarb and all sorts of delicious ideas. I also planted a couple of rows of Blackcurrants. I'm not sure why, I don't really like them but I do love the smell of the leaves.
Years fly by and I don't recall ever harvesting any currants from them but here they still are, old and shaded by trees. I don't expect fruit but perhaps I will take some cuttings and plant another row in the sun, for old times sake.
