Bountiful Harvest of Red Currants

In this photo Jean has just finished picking some of the red currants that we use in the red currant jam at Lightfoot Farm. We are hoping to produce more red currants on the farm and have recently planted more bushes. The red currant is a member of the gooseberry family and the latin name for the genus is Ribes.
Red currants have many health benefits.  They help to maintain a good balance of electrolytes. They are a good antioxidant and are rich in anthocyanins and proanthocyanin.  Red currants are benficial for diabetics and heart patients.  They also have blood cleansing and digestive properties (from www. onlyfoods.net).

Your harvest of red currents is indeed bountiful. You do look like a great farmer of red currants. Red currants are really hard to grow because they require a lot of attention from its owner. Red currants are also delicate to weather changes and such. They are also vulnerable to ants and other kinds of pests because of their smell which attracts a lot of the said pests. I have been fond of red currants and I would love to have some of your harvest.

You must keep one thing in your mind that nothing over here is real, creativity is God-gifted and it would be improved time by time. We all must respect humanity, peace and spread love among each other.
