I planted this gooseberry bush in my community garden plot last fall. The bush was an impulse purchase, on sale at a local garden store at a price I couldn’t ignore. I hemmed and hawed at the store, uncertain about whether I wanted to commit permanent space to a small bush. And now that it is starting to produce tiny fruit I think that question is answered by my excitement in imagining future jars of jam. Now if we could just find the space for a black currant bush I’d be in jam heaven.
