The red currants are ripe at Dar's house. I started picking at around 5:30 tonight, once again with great big sea and tanglefoot playing in my ears (gotta stick to the tradition!) and left around 8 when it started getting buggy out. I've got over 6 cups of berries, and I'll go back tomorrow and pick some more. She's not interested in keeping any berries for herself this year, she's still got lots frozen from last year. A good day for sunshine and music and good friends.
