PlumsThese are the first of the plums that I harvested today. We planted some Minarette trees out the front. A dozen trees in a tiny space, of assorted fruit, not much more than 2 feet apart. This is the first plum harvest, and I am really excited about it. The plum trees are laden and it looks like I will need to pick some every day for a week or two, as they come to ripeness.

We will obviously be eating them fresh, and DP loves his oaty crumbles, but I would really like to find some main course savoury ideas to use them. So I am currently Googling away to find some.

If you have any ideas, I would love to hear them.

The apples in the picture are a couple of Discoveries. They are MUCH nicer picked and eaten within a couple of hours, even the same afternoon the flavour will start to fall away. So I will be picking one each every day while they last. They don’t cook very well, they go to grey mush, the juice isn’t all that. They really are a good example of a fantastic product best grown at home.
