Greengages this morning.


Greengages this morning. (Prunus domestica (Plum))

I was up really early this morning and it was so nice out that I thought I would pick the Greengage plums and make some Jelly.

The grandchildren have been bouncing on the swing fastened to one of the branches this afternoon causing an avalanch. There's another bucket full to preserve and the children were eating lots as we picked them up. Daughter in law was shuddering because they weren't washed first....lol

She shouldn't worry Sheila I doubt they've been sprayed with anything in your garden , you know what they use to say ," You have to eat a bushel of dirt before you die " the fruit will do them more good :o)

I usually eat up greengages so fast they never get to be jammed, well only in me, & they don't have a disastrous effect!
