We are very lucky to have several berry bushes near our house. They are yummy for us of course, but they also draw in neighbors and hoards of children. Here you see Michele and her daughter Kessy lured in and eating from the gooseberry bush:We have mountain berries (my personal favorite) blackberries, raspberries, and gooseberries. We have had this particular gooseberry at the head of our garden entrance for 3 years now. The first two years it did not bear ANY fruit. Last summer it had a total of 3 berries. Alex gave this thorny bush an ultimatum last year that if it didn't start producing, it would be dug up. And behold all of this fruit! This is about 1/4 of what it gave off this year. Alex turned these into a tart and buttery gooseberry pie.
