red currents in the back yard

just two months ago, i planted a red and a white current bush in the back yard, together with 4 summer raspberrie bushes. the berries are getting to be ripe and of course the little eyes spot those red glowing currents right away. it was no surprise to be, as i was hanging laundry this week to find thea dance around the bushes and enjoy the currents.
not surprisingly she went straight for the red ones and has so far dismissed the white ones...
i'm sure the older kids will be happy about this one, as they love those sour currents too.
in regards to the raspberries, yes there were about a hand full of fruits on each "bush". i'm pleased and look forward to the years to come as they will mature and bare more fruit.
