Yum Plums!


It's so nice when you can finally enjoy the fruits of your labor. This is the first time our little plum tree has had fruit. We got approximately three pounds of sweet juicy plums. They are all gone now and guess who ate most of them?

Oh my, that looks so good. sweet juicy, lushious. Is that a word? :D

Rose said...

If I had been there, would you have shared? Those look so yummy. When I worked at the orchard, I used to pick the plums in the fall. I never started liking them till the last 3 or 4 years I was there. I feel like I wasted so much time.

Carletta said...

For the first crop they look delicious. I love that shot of them in the bowl!

Ida said...

That sounds like summer!

gaz said...

mmmm plums.
reminds me of the damson trees we had growing down the bottom of our garden when i was a nipper.

June said...

That it's yours makes it all the more sweet. Lucky you!

The Texican said...

I love those plums too Dot. But fresh ones off your own tree are so much more flavorful than those picked before they're ready and ripened in the store.

Kerri said...

They look yummy!

Judy said...

Oh how yummy! My husband would die to have a plum tree.

Dina said...

There's nothing quite like harvesting the fruits of your labor. The plums look beautiful.
LA is Lower Alabama? ha Good one. Well, I'm glad you got to go there instead of crazy Los Angeles.

I'm glad you took a couple of photos before you finished them off. I bet it was a close race, though. The plums sure look good!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Oh yummy is right, lucky you that you have them. I bought some last week at Costco and they weren't very good.

Dick said...

I think it was you!!!!

Craver Vii said...

All gone now? Well, that's the pits, isn't it?

They look deeeeelicious; those are some sweet, mouth-watering photographs!

Dot: I so love the sweetness of those little plums from the tree.

I was just over to Imac's and changed your cheer.

Sorry Dot but:
I scream
you scream
we all scream for beer in our ice cream! LOL

Daryl said...

Yum indeed .. they look as good as they must taste!

and I have been to a lot of places .. both here in the US of A and overseas in Europe ... I love to travel .. Venice was a trip taken 5 yrs ago this coming October ... my oldest/best friend's son got married there so we all got together and turned it into a little vacation ... its a photographers dream to wander Venice camera in hand .. it is a most photogenic city .. but then Italy is a beautiful country from Venice on down to the tip of the 'boot'

Nice pictures and they certainly look good, but I don't like to eat them.

Plums look so good. Maybe Annie
put her blog on ice and will rise
again for it says you can not take that title. Makes me think she will return.

Paulie said...

Good thing I wasn't there -- you might not have gotten a one!

granmal said...

I saw the first picture and thought, did she grow these herself! The next picture answered my question. My husband planted a plum tree last year-nothing yet-he was so disappointed. I think maybe it's in a spot that doesn't get enough sun. Great job!

My friend as a great Plum tree... never seems to have a bad year.. I of course get plenty from him.. :O).. Plud apple and ginger pies or crumble.. beautiful with icecream or warm custard

Pecos Blue said...

Looks great. I love fruit trees so worth the wait.

photowannabe said...

We didn't get but a few plums this season. Tastey but darn they are gone. Not a lot of bees doing the pollinating this year.

my little corner said...

yummy Dot....how many trees do you have.....Think I will go pout in the corner with Andrea.....

quinttarantino said...

I love them when they are still a little bit hard and fresh ... I put them int he freezer and afterwards ... yumm ...

Alan said...

Mmm... love a good, fresh, juicy plum. They tempt me each pass through the produce section at Publix. :)

Betty Jo said...

I love plums. As a child I used to pick wild plums in my grandfather's hedgerows in GA. That was the life! xoxo

Dot,

My plum tree has fruit on it for the first time this year, the plums are so good. Yours looks good too. The birds are helping me eat them...:) I have to pick fast, what I don't eat, I give away.
