Comparing Cherries with Plums

2014-01-04 13.42.13

The massive cherries I had to buy in Dunedin because the resident Kereru ate all the cherries on my cherry  tree. The plums are from my tree, though and the Kereru swallows them whole, too. The plums are small, but plentiful. We have made jam, given basket fulls away, made tarts, put some in gin, trying our hand at candies, etc and are eating as many as we can.  No more plums for the grand kids due to runny or plum tummies!
