For Plum's Sake

We spent a lot of time harvesting plums from our tree on Memorial Day.

 Jonathan loves to climb in the tree and shake the plums out.
We were so confused when one of our plums came off the tree with a stamp on it.  Then, when I took off Rory's shoes, I saw the exact same mark. 

Watching plums fall.

  The girls then gather all the plums that fall and pick out the good ones to keep and throw the yucky ones in the bushes.  Faith is usually pretty good at figuring out which ones are keepers and which ones are tossers, but I can't say the same for Favor and Rory.

Faith is trying to show Rory how to choose good plums.

Rory has been potty training, so lots of her time was spent doing this.
 By the end of the weekend, we ended up with about 6 gallons of plums.  We gave most of them away to our neighbors, but made sure to save some for plum crisp and plum jam.
