Another Big Haul of Plums - Second Part of Harvest
I thought that since we picked two days ago our first big batch of Japanese plums, that it may be harder to find as many ripe today. But that extreme sun and heat that we've been having lately in Vancouver resulted in quick ripening. So I hauled about the same amount again today :
Standing on the bathroom scales, it looks like we got about 37 pounds of plums today. So about 70+ pounds so far. Surprisingly, there are still a lot of plums left in the tree. We've probably picked 2 / 3 of it now. So the total may be about 100+ pounds of plums this year.
Wow! What a little over-achiever this plum tree is. I hope to treat it well, and this happy relationship can continue for many years. Soon I'll need to start learning some plum recipes. :-)
