The branches of our plum tree are bending from the weight of ripening fruits. Not wanting these to go to waste or possibly causing more damage to the tree, D and I spent a few minutes plucking and harvesting about 20 plums from the fruit-laden plant. This is our first harvest of the fruits. There shall be many more throughout the summer. I will have to freeze some of these, bake several plum cakes, and give the nice ones away.
The green peas are at their end stage of production. Soon, I will be able to remove the dried up plants and make space for other things. Because there is a drought going on, I am reluctant to plant anything that requires too much water. I need to find out more about drought-resistant vegetables and herbs.
