Many people have commented on the rainbow of colours, shapes and sizes of the different plums that we have been picking this year.
So we thought it would be nice to show that it is also possible to collect some nice fat purple plums; just like the type that you might expect to buy in your local green-grocer or supermarket.
Unfortunately, when we located these ones, we were not fully prepared. Although improvisation can be less effective, it is often much more fun.
Regardless of any equipment deficit, we came away with enough juicy, ripe, bloomy plums to keep us going for a couple of days.
