    Wild Food...wild plums

    Yesterday I was strimming the yard when I thought, blow this for a joke, I shall take the dogs to the river for a swim...off we go!

    While letting the dogs out of the dog box I espied a tree, a very bountiful wild plum tree!! The plums are green in colour but very sweet. Rummaged around in the ute and found a suitable bag, picked an amount of the spherical delights, and when home cooked two jar lots and had what was left over for pudding with a dollop of cream...we will be going back to visit the tree...I added a cinnamon stick



    They will go well in a crumble come Winter!

    Excellent EeeBees. For the uninitiated among us (namely me) what pray tell is strimming?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Very nice.
    At a guess, I would say that when you got home you still had the strimming to complete?

    Yes, Sako75, and I have to say what was left to do is still left to do as a beautiful thunderstorm came through and that was that...hopefully will have the ergs to get it finished tomorrow after work.
