Levi enjoyed the picking the plums and savoring the sweet juice. He even figured out he needed to hand me the pit and the skin. What a sweet, sticky mess he was when we finished.
This summer was an eye-opener for me. This area is brimming with wild fruit for the picking! Alyssa had always been scouting out places to pick berries or crab apples. But this summer I actually got into it. We found lots of apples and made applesauce, wild plums...made plum jam, and wild grapes...made grape jelly. Also, one night I found Kent in the kitchen canning a jar of grape juice from these wild grapes. Now isn't that impressive! He said he remembered his mom doing it and thought he could give it a try.
