Currants, also known as the edible Ribes (Ribes is genus of about 150 species), are pretty common in the northern hemisphere. We have black, red, white and green currants.
On a February day we sat in our office working when suddenly Nick shouts: "Look, a deer!". Indeed it was a deer, walking peacefully on our open front yard, obviously on its way somewhere.
When we started with our Nordic Permaculture we didn't have much clue about berry bushes. We simply bought what we needed from the garden shop and planted them.
On our premises we have many different berry bushes, including red, white, black and green currants. Most of our currants are red and black, so we do get quite a lot of harvest of these kinds.
Finaly the red currants made their way into our home. We have many bushes arround the premises but two of them are really big. It took a lot of time to pick one entire bush. And what do we make out of them? That's coming next!
