enough plums?

We have been having very windy weather recently and last night the wind was really strong. This morning we had a surprise in our garden, one of the branches of the last plum tree to ripen has been snapped by the wind. It was full of of not yer ripe plums, a few jars of jam less then!
May be it is the nature's way of telling us: enough is enough.

I must admit that the plum harvest has been huge! Some fruit has been processed, lots given away and I am still working on it!
Today I made a plum and strawberry jam and a plum crumble.

And one for the freezer.


  1. Que pena el ciruelo pero la mermelada tiene que estar buenisima

  2. Very jealous of the plum tree, any fruit tree in fact. I do wish we had planted some fruit trees when we moved to this house....but who knew we would still be there 40 years later.

  3. So disappointing about the plum tree but you have certainly been cooking up a storm

  4. Mmm i love plum crumble...well if im telling the truth i love any think the fruit crops have been great this year too...i believe its because we had a proper theory anyhow x

  5. Lovely to see your cooking as always Radka. Thanks for sharing. You are a busy person. Sorry I haven't commented before, computer not my best friend at the moment. Thank you for your kind comments on my blog.

  6. Perhaps the tree was just stressed after some really unseasonable hot weather and the effort of producing such a big crop. Perhaps the pruning saw is required.
