Plums! I have plums coming out my ears -- I have dogs covered in sticky plum sludge from where they've gotten tired of eating them (they spit the pits out just like people) and have started just rolling on the downed fruit. I made 8 jars of Too Hot Plum Sauce (forgot how hot a whole can of chipoltes are), and 8 jars of straight plum jam. Add that to the 4 apple trees that yeilded 8 big garbage cans of rotten fallen fruit over about a month, and 5 gallons of cider once I found the local farm that will press them. Oh, and the 10 jars of cherry jam I put up (plus several pies) from the feral pie cherry trees in the empty lot down the street. We're drowning in fruit here --

Wow, sounds like a great fruit year!
Here we have had such strange weather this season that nothing produced copiously. At my mom's last weekend we scrounged up enough apples to make two lousy quarts of applesauce (and reminisced about the year that Dutchess apple tree produced so many apples that my stepfather snuck two extra grocery bags of them into my trunk when I wasn't looking!) THAT was an applesauce year!

No, you're wrong. Raspberries are the best. Then cherries. Especially Portuguese cherries.

Meg

I totally forgot about cherries, we get them for such a short time here. One time I stayed in a house in Carpentras, in the Rhone, for five days and I recall standing under the cherry trees munching blissfully for about an hour each day. Yum, cherries.
