Red Currant Harvest 2015

Little Red Jewels

Hot, dry day today, 11C-33C. No rain for a couple of weeks. Paddocks going brown and dry. Water tank only half full. Dave and I supered the hive this morning. Very glad to have the bee keeping jacket but my bees never got upset. Didn’t look at the individual frames but they were covered in bees and all looked healthy. Need to super twice more before Autumn and figure out when is best for the bees to take a couple of frames of honey. Sat and watched them for 30 mins before going inside for breakfast.
Harvested 650g of red currants from our only currant bush (in the food forest), flies pretty bad.

Made Red Currant Cordial. Leftovers were made into red currant syrup and red currant jelly. Afternoon spent cutting frost damaged leaves off all the plants. Surprisingly it looks like most of the plants will survive, new green leaves and shoots are growing on most of them.
