Saturday Morning Damson Hunt

So, Saturday morning is Caiden and Dad’s walk time.  We sometimes just walk round the local area and sometimes go out of town and find a patch of woodland or a lake.  Last weekend I noticed Damsons growing over the fence of a nearby school, the tree was scrawny and looked only perhaps 10 years old.  I got to wondering how the tree got there; it was certainly not planted deliberately given the location of other trees in the playground area.

I’m thinking maybe a bird dropped a damson there, or a person discarded a stone as they walked along, it’s possible there’s a much bigger tree somewhere in the local area.  So that’s Saturday morning sorted, we shall find this older, bigger Damson tree and harvest it to make Jam and Wine.

You’ve got to love Damson’s, they’re so much tastier than Plums, and free…
