Monday 19 December 2011: Plum (xiv)
Since the last plum blip we've had 172 mm of rain. Been a bit worried about the plum crop , last year we had huge rain about this time and most of them split. As you can see no splitting so far, looking good , colouring up. Our first tree is ready about xmas, I think it's a bit behind this year , this tree is the second to ripen, so not too many blips to go before harvest. Next weeks plum blip might be a day or two later than usual.
