I love this time of year when our plants begin to bear fruit. I know there will be a lot of work involved with harvesting and preserving, but it is still always amazing to me how God designed each plant to bear so much fruit! Far more than you would think a plant would need to simple reseed itself - no, it produces fruit in abundance - to make sure of its survival!
These currant bushes near our wash-house are especially heavy with berries this year -- which probably means that the gooseberries are also really loaded right now, down in the lower 40. We haven't had a chance to go check on them - but I hope to this weekend. See if there are enough berries to make a pie for Steven.
The garden has been very good so far this year, as well, with the wonderful rains we have received this year. This is some of the varieties of squash/zucchini that is currently ready to pick!
