All my gages have gone!
I go down and inspect the plum tree Ouillins Golden Gage daily. The plums change from green to yellow and that is when they are ripe to eat. Usually its mid August they are ready but with this warm weather they might have come early.
I went to look today and not a single plum is on the tree, true the wasps eat a few, but where have they all gone. The tree is fairly tall so I would not think the scrumpers have been visiting, our garden is well hedged against muntjac and we don't have small children living anywhere near.
There is no debris that one would expect from a squirrel, tho in 30 years this has never happened before. We have a great many magpies and pidgeons in the garden, could they be responsible? I have no idea what has happened. One day lots of plums, the next no plums, all very mysterious. I grow raspberries and they ripen by the day, they are OK
