Malc nearly bought plums

Yesterday in the Varen market Malc who was shopping whilst I held the dogs outside the halle ( Eldo cannot go in, in case he cocks his leg on the floor level paniers!!!) nearly bought some lovely looking plums.
He confessed quite sheepishly "I forgot in a few days we will have more plums than we can cope with". We have two laden pruniers and a small wood of prune de cochon. Must buy more sugar for jam making. Plums can be a bit like courgettes, hard to give away as everyone has them.
Conversely we have few grapes.
