Ordering For Next Year's Planting

We've taken the plunge and put together our order of currant bushes. We're starting with red (Red Lake) and white (White Imperial) currants. I'm so nervous, but the decision had to made as the fall deadline for orders is the end of September.

Check out www.hort.cornell.edu/nursery to find a list of nurseries that sell currants, or any other fruit for that matter.

I have not tried planting those those yet.

I received a great harvest from my grapevine. My daughter and I picked the grapes last evening. The remainder should be ripe by next weekend. I think I will make grape jelly with the first batch.

We choose to give currants a try because they do well in partial shade and we certainly have a lot of that.

I will give those a try. There is plenty of shade in the front yard.
