We have had an apple picking tradition for a little while, but plums have passed by us without too much pause the last few years. I am not sure why. The last major canning session was when Finnian was not yet 2. Well, a bumper crop this year meant 5 broken branches and a ton of plums. We've been picking (even put Stian to work during the 3 hour visit we got in between cruises), cutting, freezing, cooking, canning, sharing, eating, and drinking!
