Need to see the inside ... all we have there is a roundish greenish thing.  A pic of the calyx would be good too.

OH and Possum have got into comic books too - very Belgian to read "bandes dessinées".   I have a friend in Belgium with an entire room lined with made to measure shelves for his collection.  ...

 We have one of those friends ... he lives in a flat ... hope the floor can take the weight 

Beware Cheyngel ... I've known slugs to find their way indoors!

I should have stopped OH setting off for the city on his bike ... the heavens have opened and I've had to come indoors ... just had time to roughly weed the fruit patch and around the courgettes ... and found that the newest courgettes have been tasted by slugs Grrrrrr   I shall be out there tonight!!!  Perhaps a Slug Pub is needed!

Cheyngel  - hope the shop-minding goes well ... sounds just the sort of place my OH and his mates could happily spend several hours in

...Possum and I have been for a bike ride this morning.  Hard work now I've discovered/remembered how to work the 21 gears!  Grew up decades ago with 3 gears and not convinced 21 are an improvement.  ...

 Totally agree Obs ... I haven't found that they make the hills any easier ... and this bit of Norfolk is NOT FLAT

Victoria Plum - disease?

Aghast at the idea of wasting plums I googled and discovered Pickled Green Plums ... 

I've never tried it but if your unripe plums are ok inside I'd have a go at it if I were you ... and then let us know what you think ... sounds delicious to me ... I've not got a plum tree
