Saturday Steals- Plums!

So I know I’m a little late this weekend, but its defiantly worth it! I’m so stocked about my steal.

This morning James and I went plum picking at my Dads. In his back garden there is this huge plum tree which he has been growing since before I was born. I spent my childhood climbing this tree, hiding on the wall behind it and laying out on the top of my Dads shed (which sits right behind it) and reading. In my book this is a most excellent tree!

Made even more excellent today by the amazing haul it gave to us. The photo below shows only half of what we managed to pick- though if felt like we barely made a dent in all the fruit on it today!

I see many jars of plum jam, sauce and plum crumble in my future! And best of all they were free! Which considering that boxes of about eight plums in the supermarket can cost about £1.99, I feel that thats a pretty cool saving!

Head on over to Archives of Our Lives to check out some more excellent steals!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend, I will see everyone next week! xxx


  1. Awesome! We had a plum tree in our backyard growing up, but we never got even close to that many plums in all the years combined before it decided it was too hot here and died. That's a great steal! And you'll have so much fun making jam :O)

  2. Ugh, I'm so sorry it took me so long to comment this week! Here it is already time for another steal and I'm barely getting around to it.

    I can't wait to see what you make of your bounty! I love plums. Especially English plums (I've never actually had an English plum, but I just know they're better there).
