Peaches and Pears and soon to be Plums

In the midst of a busy day of appointments and shopping, a fantastic gift from friends – clingstone peaches and Corella pears, LOTS of them.

No prizes for guessing what we will be doing tomorrow – preserving them all one way or another.

Someone else is picking damson plums for us, which will go into Worcestershire sauce. I usually like to cook this outside so the curtains don’t end up smelling of it for months.

However the wasps have come early and I know they will dive bomb the brew even as it’s cooking.

Strange to think that last week I only just scraped together enough produce to run the Bottling class, and now we have it in almost literally truckloads.

Many thanks to our generous friends! Very much appreciate your sharing the beautiful fruit.
