Our tiny patio is loaded with life. I like tending to plants. The fact that pots now surround plants growing from the ground attests to our overabundance.
Growing in the very corner of the patio is a plum tree. I like to keep it around seven feet tall, but it’s been a while.
This year the tree produced a plum.
Here’s the amazing thing — It’s perfect. Well, perfect from the outside. My ‘orchard’ has had minimal contact with pesticides. The inside might be different.
Perfect. Holy crap!
And it tastes amazing. Sweet, yet simultaneously tart, it was juicy with firm fruit.
Now I have to wait another year!
