Hawkes Bay and thought I'd missed the season, but I was delighted to find the season is in full swing and my plums will arrive this week.
If you have ever tasted damson plum jam, you would never again buy the insipid concoctions the supermarkets offer.
Other favourites are Crabb apple jelly and Golden Queen peaches.
