    Great harvest. Is that a Chinese food container that they are in? I use those plastic containers extensively for all manner of things from harvesting to freezing. They are supremely handy.

    They do Ms. Morning. :) I'll post a photo soon. They are quite a rapid grower, my sticks from last year are now shrubs with berries. They are also called a Honeyberry. They have a pretty leaf.

    Thank you Sjoerd, no they're in a ice cream container that i use after we've ate the Ice cream, but it's a very sturdy one.

    Great harvest, Loggie. What are your plans for them, Loggie? Folks are harvesting their currents here now as well.
    You have great postings.

    Thank you Sjoerd, I'll freeze them and get them off the strings while still frozen and mix them with black and red currants to make a fruit compote or a summer pudding. Some will go on our porridge in the morning.

    Picked the first blackberries, they'll go in the freezer to use later for crumbles.
