Its raining plums in the garden, for the first time ever our plum tree has produced a decent crop, its taken about 10 years for this to happen ! I think the variety is called 'Avalon' , its was birthday present quite a few years ago. Its been a race against the wasps for who gets to the ripe fruit first, Due to the size of the glut I think I will be freezing most of it for pie, crumble and cobbler filling, but I also love English plums raw.
The garden has been particularly bountiful this year, currently I am picking
· Cucumber - I can thoroughly recommend cucumber sandwiches a la Val Warner
· Courgettes - that’s a story for another day
· Beans - broad and french
· Blackberries / loganberries
· Spring onions
· Baby Carrots
Wow that’s a lot of fruit and veg.
