Garden Tuesday: Plums

Late last week, my lawn service guy mentioned that he'd been eating plums from the trees in our orchard.  So after the work day was finished, I took my basket, wandered down to our little orchard, and picked some plums.

They were sweet; they were perfect.  They were gone later that night.

Of course, I didn't take a picture of the plum trees because (a) it was dusk and (b) they aren't that easy to see, being backed up to our property line fence and the trees between our house and the neighbor's.  That's ok; the plums were pretty enough.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Did I know that you had a plum tree?? Well, I probably did, but like everything else, I've forgotten it. How nice! I am so jealous of people with fruit trees.

Very pretty. I had a plum tree in my yard growing up and I loved eating them! They were always so sweet and juicy.

What a sweet treat! I am not a huge plum fan, but I do enjoy one or two now and then. I think it is time!

We had a lot of plums on the tree this year but they're really sour. The squirrels bring them on the deck to eat and leave a mess.
