It is harvest time in our yard. The plum tree is laden with ripe plums, and fallen plums lay on the ground beneath it as food for the birds and bugs. Tonight after dinner Lila (The daughter of the owner’s of our house) was outside our kitchen window picking the purple fruit to make jam. Lila’s hands soon became full and so I sent Maya outside with a colander for her to fill. Elle of course wanted to go too, and so the four of us picked the ripe fruit together. What will we do with all of this wonderful fruit…..a plum tart is on my mind, while Maya is talking of sugar plums.
