A fellow blogger helped me to find a term for my garden. It is called a woodland garden or a forest garden. For me it’s an experiment and an opportunity to learn how to work with my forest or my little patch of woods. So far I have harvested about 20 turnips, A handful of peas, a quart of green beans, a few meals worth of lettuce and kale, Nine tomatoes, and a few radishes. Oh yes and then there’s the berries: Black raspberries, currents and gooseberries.

Thanks for joining in.
A forest garden! How lovely! And the fruits of your labor make it worthwhile, yum! Funny, I was just reading about gooseberries in Hilary Mantel’s “The Mirror and the Light” and wondering what they tasted like. She had them in an “aromatic custard and spice” dessert circa 16th century 🙂

They are kind of a cross between a grape and a blueberry.
I can just about envision that. 🙂
If you ever get a chance have a handful. But make sure they are ripe. Unripe ones are very bitter.
Sounds great, Farmer Joe!
