Humans vs Birds. Who will get to the gooseberries first? I am pretty sure I don't even like gooseberries. One day the bushes are full of plumb berries and the next day, basket in hand, ready to harvest, they are all gone. There is just that last one on the bush that even the birds did not want. So you pick it, pop it in your mouth, and spit it right back out. Not only are gooseberries sour, the are also kind of furry. Regardless, picking something that you can eat makes me feel like I am fending for myself. Like, you could drop me off in a forest and I could survive for days, weeks, even months.
