A short time ago I posted a blog about cherries that we had from our neighbours’ garden this summer and I mentioned that we had a couple of fruit trees in our garden too; a pear tree and a plum tree (sorry, no peaches, not in this country anyway). At the time the fruit was just beginning to grow and now after a long hot summer the fruit is finally ripe and ready to eat – well the plums at least anyway, the pears still need a little more time.
I thought I’d share a few photos of the fruit as they look so good. The plums we have are called Victoria
My sister’s father-in-law is visiting at the moment and was pleased to be able to pick the ones that were ripe. They were really soft and juicy and enjoyed all round
Our pear tree grows pears called Conference. The ones in our garden are almost ripe
I’d love to hear what others have in their gardens at this time of year
I have been eating a lot of plums recently – they have been really delicious. I only wish they had been from our own garden!
We’ve been lucky to have a plum tree in our garden for years now, but we did use to go to a farm that had ‘pick your own’ fruit trees which is also a lot of fun. Thanks for your visit 🙂
