picking redcurrants this morning. not many ready yet but all good fat ones. I don't leave them for the whole string to ripen but pick them off as and when they are ready.
later, trimmed back the roses that have flowered. they have black spot which I just tolerate, preferring not to spray with fungicide. all these trimmings go in the council garden waste bin rather than the compost heap.
also cut back the forsythia and cleaned up the prunings to make pea-sticks.
