Plum Jam RedemptionMonday, January 07, 2013
There is a spiky, self sown plum tree stretching over our herb garden. As I weed underneath it and cursing at the spikes, I wonder if this is the year that we cut it down or replace it with something a little less ferocious. Then over the period of two weeks, each January, the green plums turn a glowing yellow and the tree redeems itself. The plums make the most wonderful jam and for another year the tree is off the hook.
