How can I tell when my plums are ripe enough to pick?! #plums #topickornottopick

If you give them a gentle tug, they should come away easily. Or you could give them a little squeeze - if they feel slightly soft they are ready 😊

Expert advice, thanks @Andreamarie ! Like the look of your spiced brandy plums. What's the technique?

Any time now , good advice off @Andreamarie if you give your plums a little tug ........ and feel soft they are ready. Mine are ready now and are falling by the day.
