The plum season is over; apple season has started! When I only could find four small plums for my lunch I added some apples. They are ripe! And they taste good. They are smaller than what you buy in a shop but that's OK; I can just eat more of them. And there are many on the tree; I will be able to do ad hoc snacking from my own garden for a while now I'm sure. And apples last better than plums. I'm sure I can keep some after the tree has given all up! Very nice!
