We spent an hour picking plums and apples, and shooting the breeze with our neighbour. I then spent the weekend making plum jam and apple sauce. This is how life should be!
Last Thursday I had a rare day off work. Toby was at preschool, and the girls at school, so it was just CB and I at home. One of our neighbours had told CB that they had a whole lot of unpicked plums and apples in their orchard, and we were free to go and grab some. Our orchard is a few years behind and we don’t yet have excess fruit. So we headed over to pick some fruit, and explore their garden. It’s always fun to see what our friends and neighbours are growing. The apples were beautiful – look at those colours!
