I can has plums?


That time of year again! Golden plum harvest time. I was surprised to see as much fruit as I did. I pruned the hell out of the Chinese Golden Plum tree last fall. And the birds were already making hey out of the ripened fruit. But I got like three buckets of plums, so I guess I will make Golden Plum Jam. And some plum brandy for christmas. This keeps up I'm gonna change my name to Smucker!

The squirrels around us probably would get really excited if I had a plum tree :)
