Small narrow garden behind a family house with an even smaller fish pond in a village in the middle of Europe. It's a great place to relax.

#blackcurrant is #readytoharvest It's not so much work on my two small young bushes 😉 It's more like small appetizer when you go around. But that's exactly what I wanted.

It started to color a few days ago Sharon and now it goes really fast. But as you know, black does not yet mean ripe. 😉 @sharonhayden

You'll see. Red and white currant are at the end a bit semitransparent, blackcurrant is a bit different, has thicker dark black skin and dry brown rest of flowering stays on berries and sticks very well. But you have to give some time to black berries. It is very good, but have to be really ripe and it is not yet immediately when turns to black. I like white currant. It is delicious. But I don't have it on my garden yet. @sharonhayden
