I've been up to my armpits again in plums, apricots, peaches and nectarines. The figs are on their way and....look.....the grapes are swelling nicely.
There are bags of blanched fruit, fruit in syrup and stewed fruit in the freezer.
Not only this, but much work had to be done inside and outside the house to remedy the damage done following a long wet winter. The inside has been repainted, everything cleaned and polished when put back and now D is starting on the exterior. A retired couple's work is never done.
