The tale of the gooseberries

We're getting our first gooseberries.  Finally!  After 4 consecutive summers of the fruit disappearing over night., we were able to fool the cedar wax wings by putting netting over the bushes as soon as the blooms turned into fruit.  Now the eating starts although there is plenty for freezing and making jam as well.

I am still knitting socks.  Just have to post photos.

In the meantime knit on merrily while we enjoy our gooseberries.

  1. Oooh, gooseberries. Haven't had them since 1971 when we lived in Oregon. I used to make a gooseberry pie that had a custard base...that was so good. Enjoy.
