Deadly nightshade is quite different.  Not at all common and confined to chalk soils. And a shrubby plant, not a twiner.  And it has black berries; I think the one pictured will have green (already in the photo) ripening to red/orange berries.

Looked like that to me too.  In other words a weed.  Woody Nightshade.

The real problem will be getting rid of the weeds which will inevitably seed in it.

Corn on the cob

When you want to cook the cobs, don't hang about!  Cook them immediately after picking before the sugars in the cobs turn to starch.

They do say you should take the boiling water to the plants!!  A bit impractical, and I find the best way to cook them is in the microwave with most of their own wrapping on.

Lucky you!  Maybe your best bet is to look on a good site selling plum trees and see if you can see your plum.

I don't think we can give a definitive answer unless you post a close-up picture of the actual plum, before the wasps get them.

State of Water in Water Butts

All my water is in plastic ex-chemical barrels and ex-fruitjuice concentrate barrels.  None of it smells.  The trick is to keep the lid on at all times. Allowing of course water to flow into them from the drainpipes through water diverters.

Sounds like good old flowering currant!  Hardly a rarity.

gledhillda, I have just Googled 'Dilution rate of Roundup 3000' and all the information is there.  You can download it or there is a picture of the product with the dilution rate on the picture of the label.

gledhillda, the Rounup product I have is Roundup Pro Biactive.  There are several applications for various situations. I do not know the product ultra 3000.

If what you have is Agricultural Roundup I think the rate is 25ml in 1litre of water for a knapsack sprayer.

Might I suggest you check where you bought the product and write the dilution rate on the container with a chinagraph pen.
