Wild Plum Trees

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!
