A neighbour knocked on the door last night with a bag or ripe dark plums. I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I quickly washed them and made them into jam. I only got 7 jars, but it’s quality gear. Maybe tonight the jam might be the sweetener atop some pancakes. Does anyone know what variety they are……?

Any hint of a ripe tomato and inside they come. I have a possum or a rat that I need to deal with. These babies however are safe for now. But let’s face it, they’re already doomed. Soon they’ll end up in a bruschetta.
