A day ago, he was telling me that his wife was going to make cordial out of the berries, but said I could have the gooseberries as he can't stand them. I don't know what happened to change his wife's mind, but her loss is my gain and he came round this evening bearing gifts: Two large plastic boxes, one containing red currants, the other a mix of black currants and raspberries.
All of a sudden, my jam/jelly stockpile has increased dramatically, so much so, I've run out of saved jars and have had to order some as I foresee many more jars of homemade goodies to come.
Until next time. x
