Looking ahead to a good plum crop

plum tree May 14

Last year I was a bit disappointed with the crop of Victoria plums from the tree on our allotment. This year, it looks like we are heading for a much more successful crop. The above photo was taken at the end of last week and it shows lots of small fruit developing. Some of these will be lost before they can ripen but overall, this tree should produce much more fruit than last year. I'll need to dust down recipes for plum jam.
