Plums, glorious plums!

There are LOTS of luscious plums on my plum tree.  It is only two years old, so I figure that it must be happy in the spot where I planted it (probably more good luck than anything else).  As noted previously, it is a 'Luisa' plum tree.

I have to say, the plums are a joy to behold, both on the tree . . .

. . . and in the basket.  Almost ripe!

If it turns out that there are too many to eat fresh and give away, I may need to make some plum jam.  We shall see!

I will also have to do some research on pruning, as I want to keep the tree happy and fruiting.
