I am finding it difficult to keep up with the soft fruit picking at the moment. I go out almost every day and find something has ripened over the past 24hours. I am having to share these blackcurrants with the blackbirds at the moment! They are perfectly ripe, and sometimes you find an enormous specimen! It is also quite entertaining to find dollops of bright purple bird poo all over the garden (unless it is on your clean washing hung out to dry!)
