Many More than Seven
We planted a couple currant bushes three years ago. Last year they fruited. We got, if I recall correctly, seven beautiful, red currants to eat. Well, this year they did significantly better than that. This year we made it up to 9 ounces, just a shade over half a pound. Still not quite enough to bother with making jelly we decided, but I sure enjoyed much of it fresh and the rest was added to our breakfast smoothies. They're both pretty and tasty--though Matt doesn't really care for them fresh. I sure do though. If things keep progressing like this we might make some currant jelly next year by golly!
