We’ve been in Auckland this week, checking out the fruit as it hits stores. What a great reminder of all the people and processes it takes to get these beautiful plums from our trees into your hands!
Check out all this delicious summerfruit ready and waiting to go into the kids’ lunchboxes as school goes back next week:
By this time of year we’re starting to relax with the threat of spring frosts all but behind us. There were a few scares in the last couple of months, but with the windmills, heaters etc. (and some sleepless nights), our marvellous crop of plums has come through pretty unscathed.
The bees pollinated the crop well, and the whole orchard glowed white with blossom for a good few weeks there. Spring in the Bay, nothing beats it.
