My oldest grandson, Harvey J, was born on 25th April 2006, and to celebrate his arrival I planted him a Plum tree on the afternoon of his birth.
The photo below was taken on 12th August 2014, when his tree produced it's very first really heavy crop. Lady Magnon, of course, made him a Plum Tarte Tatin.
This year we have another healthy bumper crop; almost similar to that of 2014. Sadly 'Suave Harve' isn't here to enjoy another Tatin, so we'll fill the freezer instead.
The Plums are smaller this year (no rain), but I'll get quite a few bags into the freezer.
And here's a Tatin that he's missing. Lady M secretly made this one whilst I was processing the fruit for next year's tarts.
Eat yer heart out Harv'.
