Apologies for being so late with this.

I've been down the allotment (where else) and we picked our first courgette.  A most confused courgette too that can't decide if it is yellow or green.

Beth and I were sitting on the bench under the tree at the back and wondered if the fruit on the tree was edible.  It's ween there for years but we've not 'noticed' it before.

I brought a bit home, took a photo and asked on Facebook and it seems that it is a 'cherry plum, or plum myrobalan, so called because the fruits are plums that look quite like cherries and, yes, it's edible.  Brilliant.

Looks nice, doesn't it?

That's it for today - short and sweet.  Have a great day.


  1. What a wonderful find, and it's native too!

    I can already see the pots of jam lined up on the shelf. Spiced cherry plum pavlova sounds good too!

  2. Love the schizophrenic courgette.
