Summer is such a great time to be outdoors and watch the plums ripen.
Which is exactly what I did for about two months – apart from trying to get my allotment strawberries out from between loads of weeds (well, grass actually. But not the nice stay-in-one-place grass you get in lawns. The other, ambitious, conquer-the world kind. My mistake).
And one day a plum was lying on the terrace. Ripe as anything. Plum harvest time!
