Plums and peaches

We are enjoying a bumper harvest of stonefruit right now. Super juicy big plums from off our 'Louisa' trees (to the left of the basket in this photo).

I made some plum and banana muffins which did not last very long at all!

We're harvesting the stonefruit daily and fortunately they are getting eaten quickly. The plums keep a lot better than peaches, which tend to go bad overnight given the chance. I just cut the bad bits out and usually add the good flesh to smoothies, or put on top of porridge for breakfast.

I will make a peach trifle soon. If I get a chance I may bottle some of the better fruit too.

Those look positively mouth-watering. Both whole and as muffins.

We are still getting loads of the peaches! Nice small size too, ideal for a little munch :-)
