Future plums and cherries!
We harvested the last of our plums today. Nathan froze four quarts and we picked the entire giant metal bowl’s worth from the tree this evening. The squirrels can fight over whatever’s left (a few moldy oldies).
The little jar next to the bowl has cider vinegar with a piece of plastic wrap on top, with tiny holes poked in it — it’s a fruit fly trap. We saw this trick this weekend at our amazing new miniature neighborhood grocery store so we decided to give it a try.
Nathan went bonkers harvesting plums tonight! The fallen fruit went to the chickens.
