These 3 bags of plums appeared on my desk this morning.
I now have 1.5kg of halved and stoned plums in my freezer tonight!
One of my colleagues brought some plums from her garden the other day to share in the staff room. She was complaining that her tree had more plums on it than she could cope with. I said I'd take any extra she had to make chutney. She immediately offered me "loads more plums" and some apples too. A conversation followed where several people asked me what you need to make chutney. I said you can make chutney with most fruit and veggies.
This morning after the plums appeared another colleague asked if I could use some berries as her neighbour keeps giving her some.
So tomorrow I've been promised plums, apples and berries. And I'm hoping to pick the elderberries in our school playing field!
