Berries... blue, goose, and kiwi...


Blueberries are lovely, ain't it?
Planted three plants some years ago...
Didn't grow that well, so I moved them to a sunny location...
And mulched them with pine leaves...
Seems like they are comfortable with the new site...
Am looking forward to plucking them... 


Gooseberries... could not resist grabbing one...
It is a pretty shrub, a bit thorny though...
But... but... the fruits are really nothing to shout about...
I'd say they resemble a bit like grapes...
only that they are inferior in taste...
When ripe, the seeds protrude out, breaking the skin...
Not a very good investment...
Still, a joy to have it in the potager...


Could not resist grabbing the kiwi berry as well...
Two plants, in fact...
It is a climber, so I grew them near the fence...
A long bean plant nearby killed one of them...
The surviving one is doing well...
And the fruits are quite cute...
Still tiny, about one centimeter in size...
Apparently, they taste great...
