Gung-ho Gooseberry Tree (on our family farm)

Here’s a short narrative around this gung-ho gooseberry tree: it was nearly completely smashed during last year’s cyclone Vardah.

But, some careful pruning and a few good showers this summer have revived it, thank God! And the tree goes on yielding berries as of yore, bless it.

My mom, aunt and uncle (the siblings have green thumbs) make some pickles and dry the rest (to soak in sugary syrup at later dates). Both sort taste good 😊
