First pickings

I made some first pickings of some of the berry fruit this morning. Still a little more time needed for the main crop to ripen up, so lots more to come. 

The gooseberries are 'Hinnonmaki Red', smaller and a little less sharp than many of the green varieties. This is the first year the new raspberry canes have fruited, so not too bad to get started with. The blackcurrants and gooseberries will be processed in one way or another or frozen for later use. The raspberries we'll eat fresh.
