Plums


 We have baskets and baskets of plums

  A quick pick before tea and there is still at least another 2-3 basketfuls of plums to pick
So exciting!

 Last January we only got a couple of handfuls of plums

 January 2013 we got a his and her plum - they were the best tasting plums ever

The plum trees were planted November 2010 a Billington and Black Doris which pollinate each other.
The Billington tree is the only one to fruit so far.

Guess what is for breakfast this morning and in the boys lunch boxes.

  1. Hi dear Leanne, just making my rounds in the new year! That tree looks so lovely with the plums hanging from the branches. Not a plum fan, but I'm sure you will make something delicious or just enjoy them! Happy New and Healthy Year to you and your family! Hopefully snow on the way for us! xo
