I didn't realise the little tree which was growing next to my ornamental plum was a sucker, I rather liked the lush greeen leaves against the purple of the other.One day it flowered, there was blossom everywhere and then these, not the biggest of fruit or the sweetest.
I collected a bowl full not bad for free, we also had a bowl full of apples which were also a little on the tart side, so I was told :)
I hate waste so I looked through my cookbooks and found a receipe for apple and plum jam, after lots of scrabbling around to get the jam pan out and finding where I had put the jars I am pleased to say I have something to show for my six weeks off :)
One more day of my hols left,
