I made a decision this year not to grow anything edible in our own garden (apart from the herbs and soft fruit that grows by itself), so we are incredibly grateful to friends who pass on their surplus produce. Just this week we've had an enormous marrow that has contributed to three meals so far, and these beautiful purple beans.
Of course, all this produce needs processing.
Tomorrow I'm planning to turn the rest of the plums into this plum and ginger jam.
It feels good to be making jam again. I'll definitely be planting a plum tree or two once we move.
