Got a text message on my phone from SWMBO today -
'My Dad's picked some Plums for you - he says you'd better use them'.
He works as a Landscape Gardener so occasionally gets to pick free fruit.
'How many?' I replied to her, hoping for maybe a couple of pounds for the freezer for cooking or bulking out a cider maybe.
'I don't know - 4 Kilos?'.
As I'm a typical male I assumed she meant pounds and not kilos, said 'Class!' and forgot about it until arriving home.
11lb of Free Ripe Plums have just been de-stoned and mashed into a brew bucket for about 3 gallons worth!!!
