Near to our Helpx farm, there is an empty old farmhouse with an orchard of plum trees behind it. The house has been abandoned for several years now and as a result, the trees have expanded their territory to take over the empty land. I have been making daily expeditions to pick bags of plums and I now have my favorite trees. The branches are all heavy with fruit and I can fill my bag within minutes of starting to pick.
There is a huge variety of plums and even each tree tastes different! These yellow ones have a distinct apricot taste, despite there being no apricots in the area.
I'm not kidding about picking bags full of plums--I have been taking full advantage of this free snack!
