The Joy of Harvest

We are blessed with a greengage tree in our garden and this year for the first time since we’ve lived here (9 yrs) it had a bumper crop. So this was harvesting day.Greengage 1 Greengage 2

I decided to have to baskets and sort while I picked. One for damaged fruit that needed to be processed quickly and one for undamaged fruit that would last longer and was suitable for eating. Altogether from our one tree I picked 19 lbs of fruit!Greengage 3

This is the other harvest on the same day.Greengage 4
I’ve found several different recipes for preserving, which I start today with greengage relish! Yum 🙂
