As in other years, mine are being attacked by wasps.

Hmm - if you squeeze your plums each day I think you can beat the wasps.....

I thought that I may spray my plums, but my wife thinks that it's just too windy down there.

Are they quite exposed?

They're fairly well concealed and protected, after all nobody wants people scrumping their plums, but I must admit that on occasion I do throw caution to the wind and give them an airing.

My son has lovely tasty plums this year, but a lot of damage when they hit the ground.

As well as fruit cobblers I think it's going to be a great year for sloes for sloe gin - I've just got half a bagful without trying :bow
