It is TAPS who was familiar with them. She posted that photo on my page. I am totally unfamiliar with them but she said she had them as a child and loved them. We don't have them do you grow them?

I know what you Mean Justi . Retirement homes are coming up like mushrooms. Shame about the views, but I suppose some have never had that pleasure.. Do you put ginger in with the gooseberries or do you like them just sugary?

I know what you mean about those misplaced 'Mansions' - we get them here too in some completely inappropriate locations out in the country, where they just look tacky...

And about those gooseberries - we don't get them here either, but I've had gooseberry jam imported from Europe, mostly Germany, which is really delicious...

Thanks for this post. These are totally new to me. I don't know if we have them or not I don't think so because living in the country as a kid I would have encountered them. They are interesting. I bet your mother was some wonderful cook and you are too.

Re: Justi

Stachelbeeren.jpg  There are wild gooseberries around here, but they are tiny and bitter.  The domestic ones are pea size to cranberry size.  My mother and aunts got their bushes from the Mays Catalogue years ago.  Once you plant one and get it started again they come up year after year.  The bushes can get quite large and be loaded with gooseberries.  You use them green.  They do ripen to a brownish purple but they lose their flavor when they ripen.

I don't think I know what a gooseberry is. Are they like blueberries?

I'd give anything to be able to bake a fresh gooseberry pie.  Years ago my mom and my auntie both had very nice gooseberry bushes, but now I know nowhere to get them.  That was always my favorite pie.

🎪 My landlady has two compact tomato plants with a couple tomatoes on them.   Today I saw two good mass petunia beds and one burned out one on the same property love. BC-A, Bill’s Roost

A lovely post and yes so many new houses are just made with larger Lego sets. And very soon after the kids tire of visiting the oldies they will find themselves living in a tiny bit of those big houses. Bedroom bathroom and a comfy chair somewhere.
