Food Waste and Plums, Plums, Plums

I have no central topic for this post, just a bunch of little ones.

First off Food Waste. The only thing wasted this week was a half cup of spaghetti that I couldn't get through before going on vacation and didn't survive the week - no picture though.

Yes Mom, I did carry them in in my shirt.
But they were pretty clean to start with because
it had been raining. :- )
I have been eating tons of plums though. The tree in my back yard is finally bearing fruit and I've been out every night munching.  Below you can see last night's haul which was quite tasty and, yes that is a half eaten plum in my hand. I usually eat at least one in between the walk from my back yard to inside.

I love, love, love my fruit tree, and any time now my grapes will be ready to go. I am seriously considering adding more fruit trees to my property, probably one up front (since I am the only house on my street without a tree out front by the side walk) and one at the far back of my property. This will probably have to wait until next spring but I'm starting to look now because I want trees that will produce at different times.  I'm thinking at least one apple tree, not sure about the other though. I'll have to get back to you on that.

  1. Another option might be a grafted tree. That way you get different varieties (or even different fruits) from the same tree. I'm pretty sure Home Depot sells them for a reasonable price.
