As I was sitting on the screen porch today enjoying a warm Sunday afternoon, I noticed the plum tree in the kitchen garden leaning to the right side, as if very heavy. So I had to see for myself.....could it be that this plum tree, that I planted 6 years ago finally has fruit on it ?
I didn't want to get my hopes up . Last year after it had an extensive blooming period dropped it's fruit in April during the sub-zero temperatures.
When I arrived in the kitchen garden I was met with hundreds of unrippened plums on the tree. It will be an incredbile harvest of Italian plums. So excited am I that I will leave all of you with a poem about plums.
