There are two little Victoria plum trees along the drive.  One has had a very generous crop and the other one hasn't done badly.  We've had stewed plums, I've got more in the fridge ready to make a Chinese style plum sauce, and of course, there's jam.  


  1. Oh my mouth is watering now after seeing those Victoria Plums. They are my favourite variety for eating and I buy as many as I can during their short season.
    When I was a little girl, I used to scrump them from the Vicarage garden where the trees over hung the lane. I think I may have eaten rather too many because I used to erupt in 'heat bumps', itchy lumps in the skin. I'm glad that doesn't happen any more!

  2. Well I suppose there have to be some advantages in getting older!! Scrumping has to be dying art these days though! I think we are lucky to have the memories we have, of childhoods well and fruitfully spent!
