I thought I'd shake the plum tree to see which ones were ripe, to my surprise about half of them dropped off all at once. At least it's not such a battle keeping the blackbirds and waxeyes off them.

Dug up four of the early swift potato plants to see what was happening underground, the tops were all dead and brown. There were quite a few good sized tubers but there were very many very small ones as well. I am tempted to leave theme rest in situ and just furtle the larger ones as needed. Got 2.3 kg of early spuds from the four plants, seems OK.
