Plum Happy

Last night Kitty and I were enjoying the orchard after the sun had dipped below the mesa. Temps have been around 100 so I have delayed all outdoor activities until the sun has disappeared. We were checking out the peach tree since we figured it should be getting ready to harvest. Nope. Everything is still green. Kitty decided to check out the plum tree and let out a nice *squee* While most of the plums were still green, there was one deep purple one. We didn't want to pick it right then and there so we decided to just protect it until the weekend. Fortunately I had bought 2 tree nets so now it is safe from the birds.
