Fruity Posty

I sorta forgot about my nectarine tree. It was dripping with fruit, but every time I checked, they were all hard and unripe. The same thing with the plum tree. It had never produced so many, but every time I tried to sample the quality, they were all hard and sour. Slowly things changed. I started testing them with a gentle pinch. If they gave a little...ripe! The same thing was true with the plums. So now the harvest has begun! Here is the result from 2 days of harvest with probably the same amount still on the tree. Plums are still a few days away from being truly ripe.

Plums everywhere!
