Almost Free For The Taking

IMG_1682We decided that we just couldn’t completely ignore the fruit.

I posted a few weeks back about how it was bugging me so much that we don’t have time this year to properly harvest the fruit trees. I tried to mitigate that feeling by checking into a local gleaning organization but was disheartened to learn they want an ongoing relationship while I want a one harvest stand.(See what I did there?)

Oh well. It could still work out in the future maybe.

We had someone who wanted some of the plums but scheduling issues have kept that from happening.

So… we decided we’re just going to take some time this weekend to do a small batch of plum jam and pear jam. Just a few jars of each.  It will at least give us something to view as our first harvest.
