Look how lovely and frosted my berries got after they came out the freezer!
Yesterday I had to prune off the last of my oh-so-productive berry branches because I don't want my friends to get berry stained as they brush past. No great loss, there were only a handful of berries still to ripen and I have more than enough in the freezer to keep me in smoothies for a few more weeks.
I'm so enormously pleased with the bush, which was the one things that kept itself going even when I was ill in the summer (unlike the tomatoes, poor things). I've eaten mouthfulls (and often bellyfulls) of berries for nearly every day for about 2 months. I'm so glad I bought it instead of flowers when I moved here.
