So, they don't look very promising right now but I am still filled with a naive, amateur gardener's hope! These rather dead looking sticks will hopefully develop into healthy and productive redcurrant and blackcurrant bushes. I bought two of each kind, soaked the roots overnight, planted them into the garden, and then ..... it snowed!
I checked this morning and one has the tiniest bit of green on it! In typical Jenny-fashion I can't remember which is which as all four look alike...... Time will tell!
Possibly the dullest photographs on the blog! I am getting very excited about gardening though, in a way that never happened with flowers. There is something about trying to grow your own food. Getting your hands dirty and waiting for those tiny, potential filled shoots to appear. There is a sort of wholesome pleasure to it and that feeling that you are doing something productive. Of course, I am not going to be self sufficient with fruit and vegetables. Not a chance with my tiny plot! Every little helps though and I can't wait to compare home grown to supermarket bought!
