Plum Update

I'm still new to the fruit tree game, so forgive me if I jump the gun on some things. It was just over a month ago that I wrote that my plums were ripening. I figured it would be a matter of a week before I started harvesting. I finally tasted a nice purple one and *zoink* sour. I waited another week to try another one. *zoink* sour. So now the tree has over a dozen beautiful dark purple fruits hanging from the branches (still protected by the bird net) tempting me to eat one. I think I will wait until they start to get nice and soft. There's no need to hurry the ripening process. Oh, and *zoink* was what I came up with for the onomatopoeia for getting essentially the equivalent of bitter beer face.
