Apparently it is a rubbish year for fruit thanks to the early summer deluge. But we had loads of plums, just very early. The tree was dripping at the start of August but had all withered away by the end of August. We have one solitary apple but next door's pear tree is heaving. We are in London, MIL who leaves in Worcestershire has had very few apples or plums this year but had a bumper crop last year.
Raspberries, gooseberries and loads of wild strawberries. The snails had the big strawberries, none left for the birds even...
The crab apple tree on the roadside has lots of fruit. Or did, but a man came and picked them all. It doesn't belong to any one, but it always seems a little rude to me for one person to clear out wild fruit.
I tried to raise a bramble patch, but it barely flowered.
Can I ask a (probably) silly question while you lot are talking fruit? My lovely neighbour left a bag on my door step with things from her garden today and I can't identify two of them. One looks a bit like Blueberries but paler, tastes like red grapes? On a stalk like grapes but 30 or 40 on each stalk) The other was small yellow fruit with like a dried flower covering it? (you can see why I have had no luck googling with my descriptions!) any ideas? (did identify the beans and sweetcorn [proud] )
