In the heat, we went to get plums off these trees, well not those exactly, at least one is a fig, but friends have a small orchard under net and they asked if we would like to come for morning tea and pick plums, we said yes we would love to, but the heat was pretty fierce and we were glad to get indoors.
Once it cools down a bit I will stew and then freeze these as breakfast fruit with yoghurt.
We cant afford to net ours so the birds tend to get them early and any way with the water problems there would not be much any way.
This has been an odd summer, bursts of heat and then cool but little rain at all.
Our paddocks are looking bare and dry but then so are most other peoples.
Too hot to do much except early morning and late evening but it is the humidity factor that is draining us all I think.
I know this is supposed to be autumn, but at the moment roll on winter!
