A basketful of summer
Our single tree was laden with delicious blood plums this year. Red and juicy and ripe for bottling. It made for a happy sunny afternoon to gather extended family together to climb and shake and gather the fruit.
Grandson number one, the family dog, big sons, little ones, in laws and outlaws...everyone came out to join in the harvest.
I love that about living here.
There is always something "real" to do - right here in our own backyard.
Plus, we enjoyed fresh fruit crumble for dessert!
