When I was in London earlier this week, I picked the gooseberries that were growing in my back garden there. One bush had big fruit on it. Another had none at all. I'm not sure why there was such a difference. My plan was to bring the gooseberries home to Sunniside and use them to make some jam. Sadly, as I was sitting on the train to come back to the North East, I realised I'd left the gooseberries in the fridge at our flat. I'll have to retrieve them the next time I'm down. Meanwhile, it looks like we will get a good crop of gooseberries from the shrubs we planted on our main allotment 2 years ago.
