It didn't take too long to get up there on a roofing ladder (with a safety harness) and get it done.
Picked up more plumbs, got 10 Litres of Plums fermenting for wine and a pot of Plum Chutney boiling in the kitchen. I like free stuff, shame to see it going to waste. It will be apples for cider next.
the plumbs are a wonderful colour, it appeals to our hunter gatherer instincts... if 1 plum is good, 5 plums are even better and all those lying there to be picked up are unresistible.
