Plums
« on: June 04, 2024, 04:58:04 pm »
Picked 25 lbs. of Santa Rosa plums from my tree Sunday, then again today. Total just over 50 lbs. Can't even tell the tree has been picked. Limbs so heavy one broke off. I made 10 pints of jam and gave away the rest.

Awesome!  My sister wants to plant some fruit trees in the near future. 
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

Picked another 25 lb. today. Gave away 19 and kept 6 lb to make more jam tomorrow.
