First year of fruit on our plum tree

We planted our plum tree about two years ago.  Last year we had only one plum that fell off (or got knoocked off by a soccer ball?) before it rippened... this year marks our first plum harvest.

Collecting plums before the birds get to them.

Harvesting blood plums as the kids go back to school reminds me of our plum tree when I grew up - we harvested and bottled these plums about the time we went back to school.

Maybe we will have enough plums to bottle the extras in a couple of years.
