Yesterday we made wild plum jam. We have several wild plum trees on our property and often they have only one or two plums on them. This year they are loaded. Less than half an hour's picking yielded all this jam. Wild plums are much smaller and more tart than tame ones. The jam is delicious. Now we are left with trees full of plums that will probably go to the birds. There are ten pints and eight half pints. How much jam can two people eat?
In a few weeks there will be lots and lots of wild cranberries. They are not quite ripe yet. We will make cranberry jelly and cranberry ketchup when the time comes.
Yesterday I finally finished sewing down the binding on Maggie's Farm. As soon as I glue on the eyes and sew on the label it will be oficially finished and I'll post a last picture of it.
