Brandied Peaches & A Plum Cake Recipe
12 hours ago
It's the time of year when you have to take care when picking fruit as the wasps are homing in on any signs of ripeness. Plums are a particular favourite. They will also soon move in on the apples. We inherited a row of cordon apples with the plot and can only guess at the varieties. We think that the ones that we are picking at the moment are Discovery.
These are still not fully ripe but ripe enough for us to enjoy if not the wasps.
We are now picking autumn raspberries which have merged with the summer fruiters to provide a seamless raspberry harvest. Joan J always provides us with a good crop despite she and I being in constant battle with bindweed. The yellow All Gold tries to complete but the berries are soon damaged by wind and rain.
After a poor start the runner and Cobra French beans are providing a good supply of beans. The yellow and purple beans are slower to get going.
