So we've been getting bowls full of plums everyday and it is wonderful. My cabbage are forming heads and we are eating cucumbers regularly. The boys had great fun helping me find cabbage worms to kill. My tomatoes and beans are blossoming and I have lots of fresh dill. I love to use fresh dill in salads. I have potato plants shooting up and broccoli and carrots too. Yeah!
My neighbor gave me a 1/2 bushel of beets yesterday so I started canning them. I've gotten 12 jars so far and probably will get 6-8 more. We had a big fresh salad of them with onions, rice vinegar and olive oil and it was delicious.
I think I am going to try putting up some plum jam soon.
